Free Women, Free Men: Sex, Gender, Feminism

Camille Paglia, Free Women, Free Men: Sex, Gender, Feminism (Pantheon 2017).

"Paglia considers herself, depending upon her mood, a libertarian feminist, a pro-sex feminist or an 'Amazon' one. What she is really committed to, she writes in one essay here, is this: 'My mission is to be absolutely as painful as possible in every situation.'

Paglia’s arguments are incisive and worth tangling with . . . .When she bears down and worries about sentences more than poses . . . she’s a fearless public intellectual and more necessary than ever."
