ANDREA DWORKIN WOMAN HATING PDF

While Dworkin was living in Amsterdam in the Netherlands, she met Ricki Abrams, a prostitute and a fellow expatriate. Before Dworkin left Amsterdam, Dworkin spoke with Abrams about her experiences in the Netherlands, the emerging feminist movement, and the book they had begun to write together. Dworkin agreed to complete the book—which she eventually titled Woman Hating —and publish it when she reached the United States. Sitting with Ricki, talking with Ricki, I made a vow to her: that I would use everything I knew, including from prostitution, to make the women's movement stronger and better; that I'd give my life to the movement and for the movement. I promised to be honor-bound to the well-being of women, to do anything necessary for that well-being. I promised to live and to die if need be for women.

This book takes a blunt, humorous and critical approach to misogyny which is typical to all nations and analyzes it through various examples of physical and psychological brutality against women. However, she was unapologetically rebellious. It has no other purpose. It is no academic horseshit. The analysis of sexism in this book articulate what oppression is and how it has always been. Dworkin is not afraid to pitch a future where oppression will continue to prevail if we do not restructure our lives, institutions and privileges.

Andrea takes a dig at how sexism is deeply rooted in our culture and psyche, and in something as minuscule as fairy tales that we grow up reading. Cinderella, Sleeping beauty, Rapunzel are all characterized by passivity, beauty, innocence and victimization. They never think, never act, never speak, never oppose, never question, never feel and never challenge.

First, they are victims of malignity, and then objects of romantic adoration. When women are active and spoken, they are evil and must be destroyed.

She brings into light how all the male characters in the fairy tale are always good noble kings, despite the fact that they marry evil women, make their daughters suffer and fail to speak up. Andrea further writes how, when young girls enter adulthood, they are seen as bodies that can be played with, enjoyed, aroused, exploited, harassed and killed, all in the name of erotica.

Andrea is opposed to porn industry for it claims what a woman is, what she needs and what her place in society is. The submission is so absolute that it tends to transcend human forms. Women were described as being more bitter than death.

Circulation of blood in the bodies of women stopped in effort to bring the sole and heels of the toes together physically as much as possible. The psychical, intellectual and spiritual dehumanization of women perpetuated their oppression. She attacks the standards of beauty, set for women and opposes the tolerance of pain and romanticisation of that pain.

The book will make you get up and get going at times. It is harsh and accurate in depicting everyday lives of women under patriarchy and misogyny. There are depictions and analysis of oppression that will break your heart. Restrictions on female mobility, intellect and psyche as discussed here will fill you with rage to change, and the urgency of such change. Sign in. Log into your account. Password recovery.

The bride is not the Andrea Dworkin we know, who wore a uniform of denim overalls and sneakers, militant and unmitigated by a single capitulation to feminine beauty standards.

Book Review: Woman Hating By Andrea Dworkin

Like most, I feel a shudder of shock whenever I read the words of Andrea Dworkin. On crime: "I really believe a woman has the right to execute a man who has raped her. Her death at the age of 58 deprives us of a truly challenging voice. But Andrea Dworkin was always more famous for being Andrea Dworkin than anything else. Never mind her seminal works of radical feminism, never mind her disturbing theorising that our culture is built on the ability of men to rape and abuse women. For many, Dworkin was famous for being fat. She was the stereotype of the Millie Tant feminist made flesh - overweight, hairy, un-made-up, wearing old denim dungarees and DMs or bad trainers - and thus a target for ridicule.
