    About "Andrea Dworkin"

    1. i am 64 - this book brought my mother's generation to me in compassionate and world-view-changing ways back when it first came out. Dworkin's respectful and insightful take on the innately sexual politics of conservative women has proved prescient and sadly, all too relevant stillease click the amazon link for reviews-this book's exploration of the mind-set and politics of right-wing women is still expanding the understanding of those who truly care about all women. That's what Andrea Dworkin wa [...]


    2. Can I give this book 10 stars? No? BummerOne word sums up this book: BRUTAL. There's a lot of discussion amongst radical feminists about "following a thought to its logical conclusion." This means not stopping when an idea steps on PC toes or becomes uncomfortable - or downright dangerous - either personally or to the sex-class system at large (which obviously BECOMES personally dangerous for individual women.) Dworkin's book is radical - "to the root" - in every single sentence, possibly every [...]


    3. Andrea Dworkin gets such a bad rap among (some) feminists and anti-feminists alike that I was slightly wary to actually go out and find one of her books. But, in an attempt to figure out what the majority of my female relatives are thinking, I picked this up. And it was damn worth it. Firstlydid I agree with her on everything? No. I do not, for instance, consider pornography to be a base cause of anything, or even one of the biggest problems women face in society. I did, however, agree with her [...]


    4. This book helped me understand the psychology of right-wing women a little and the theories of Andrea Dworkin a lot. The writing is really, really good and persuasive even if I find Dworkin's ideas a bit pessimistic. This is a mostly-accessible read that I would recommend to someone who wanted to read about radical feminism.


    5. There is a lot to say for Right Wing Woman. Dworkin really breaks down the internal consistency of conservative women in a way that I found really compelling.Quickly, some points of interest:- Her critique of the sexual revolution: "sexual freedom" as just a reframing of men getting exactly what they want, with women needing to put up with even more males, an even higher chance of disease, etc but calling it "liberated." It's a core tenant of any radical movement, not to make your goal exactly w [...]


    6. An examination of women's reasons for collaborating with men for the limitation of women's freedom. - Dworkin asked, "Why do right-wing women agitate for their own subordination? How does the Right, controlled by men, enlist their participation and loyalty? And why do right-wing women truly hate the feminist struggle for equality?


    7. I read this book a couple years ago and it changed my life. Dworkin retains such compassion for all women, even those who fight vehemently against our own rights. Her voice is strong and courageous, and the anger she feels towards the oppression of women is inspiring.


    8. 'Right-Wing Women' finds Andrea Dworkin asking what, exactly, motivates women like Phyllis Schlafy and her contemporaries, women who fight tirelessly against the very movement (feminism) that seeks to end the oppression of all women. Dworkin's writing is clear and thoughtful, but her passion for women's liberation is unmistakable. The chapters 'Abortion' and 'Jews and Homosexuality' were particular highlights to me (her exploration of homosexuality in the Old Testament in the context of the time [...]


    9. This was my first book by Dworkin. The book consists of six essays written at the the end of the 70s beginning of the 80s: The Promise of The Ultra-Right; The Politics of Intelligence; Abortion; Jews and Homosexuals; The Coming Gynocide; Antifeminism. Dworkin's insights can be brilliant but at the same time she can be too emotional, as if she is taking things personally, and a bit too repetitive. This makes her arguments not as clear as they could be. Also, it was noticeable for me that the book [...]


    10. So over the top, and I would have liked a bit more evidence for some of the conclusions she draws. That said, there are many parts of the book that speak to the experience of many women, which is why I think it is so highly rated. And it is refreshing to hear someone speak so frankly (read:strongly) about their own experience and the issues surrounding it.


    11. This is not a book that I would recommend to anyone who is critical of radical feminism. There are lots of assertions that are not argued through and most of the book is written in extremes. However, this is a very valuable book for left-wing folks. Dworkin is brutally honest about the chauvanism prevelent in the left, and why the program of the right is more appealing to oppressed women than the program (or rather hodge-podge of ill-defined ideas)of the left. Whether consious or not, the attitu [...]


    12. It reads as if Dworkin said, over and over:"Being feminist makes no sense, and there's no hope. But it makes you so much better than all the weak minded, fetus loving, men-pleasing women. For the sake of the discussion, let me remind you I'm of Jewish descent, but just so I can use it as a prerrogative to say: Christians hate me! Nevermind, I'm not a practicing Jew. Judaism is also oppresive to women". Blergh. A waste of my time. Addressing a few valid points, with horrible outlooks and then fil [...]


    13. A stirring and compassionate analysis of Right-wing antifeminism and how little it differs from mainstream cultural and social antifeminism. Especially helpful in breaking down the superficial and ultimately irrelevant political divisions between American women.


    14. Gets repetitive at the end but overall a pretty great read about conservative psychology. I know Dworkin's work has quite a reputation but don't knock it 'til you try it!


    15. I'm 35% through with my library copy and am so impressed with it, that I am buying it to reread, mark up and use as a reference.



    16. Incredible, as ever. Definitely one of her key texts. Hard to review for a non-enthusiast, but I'll try at some point (too much travelling to do right now so no time).


    17. First Andrea Dworkin work I read. Very good, except for a weird and unhealthy obsession with sex work that I can't seem to comprehend


    18. My first introduction to Dworkin ("Intercourse") was pleasantly surprising, in that, even though I found pretty much nothing of the over-the-top radfem froth of her reputation [which might've been cool], it was a writer of understated warmth and intelligence; I expected fiery polemic, and got high quality radfem lit. crit but in a good way [rather than it just being underwhelming]. This is the fiery polemic. And man is it ever fucking goddamn fucking great. "Intercourse" was like a reassuring hu [...]
