"Life in this society being, at best, an utter bore and no aspect of society being at all relevant to women, there remains to civic-minded, responsible, thrill-seeking females only to overthrow the government, eliminate the money system, institute complete automation and destroy the male sex."—Valerie Solanas

The definitive edition of probably the finest polemic in the world. It contains a new afterword detailing the life and death of Valerie Solanas.
