Publisher Comments:

Andrea Dworkin, once called “Feminisms Malcolm X,” has been worshipped, reviled, criticized, and analyzed-but never ignored. The power of her writing, the passion of her ideals, and the ferocity of her intellect have spurred the arguments and activism of two generations of feminists. Now the book that shes best known for-in which she provoked the argument that ultimately split apart the feminist movement-is being reissued for the young women and men of the twenty-first century. Intercourse enraged as many readers as it inspired when it was first published in 1987. In it, Dworkin argues that in a male supremacist society, sex between men and women constitutes a central part of womens subordination to men. (This argument was quickly-and falsely-simplified to “all sex is rape” in the public arena, adding fire to Dworkins already radical persona.) In her introduction to this twentieth-anniversary edition of Intercourse, Ariel Levy, the author of Female Chauvinist Pigs, discusses the circumstances of Dworkins untimely death in the spring of 2005, and the enormous impact of her life and work. Dworkins argument, she points out, is the stickiest question of feminism: Can a woman fight the power when he shares her bed?

Synopsis:

The book that Andrea Dworkins best known for-in which she provoked the argument that ultimately split apart the feminist movement-is being reissued for the young women and men of the twenty-first century

Synopsis:

One of the most controversial modern feminists cuts to the heart of the gender debate to examine the social, legal, and political meanings of sexual intercourse for women, men and society.
