"From the fiery intellectual provocateur: a brilliant essay collection that both celebrates and challenges modern feminism--from motherhood to Madonna, football to Friedan, stilettos to Steinem. When Camille Paglia first burst onto the scene with her best-selling Sexual Personae, she established herself as a smart, fearless, and often dissenting voice among feminists. Now, for the first time, her best essays on the subject are gathered together in one concise volume. Whether she's declaring Madonna the future of feminism, asking if men are obsolete, calling for equal opportunity for American women years before the founding of N.O.W., or urging all women to love football, Paglia can always be counted on to get a discussion started. The rock-solid intellectual foundation beneath her fiery words assures her timeless relevance"--… (més)

Refreshing antidote to the deluge of feminist books that tediously repeat variations on the tired argument that all men are bad. ( )
  richardSprague | Mar 22, 2020 |
Free Women, Free Men is a collection of Camille Paglia's articles, lectures and interviews on feminism and gender from 1990 through 2016. A significant portion of the content consists of criticisms of modern feminism, for its pervasive misandry, its collective victimhood complex, its denial of biology, and its historical revisionism. She particularly focuses on campus feminism, with its policing of speech and dependence on institutional authorities to monitor private interactions between young men and women, and laments the rise of "gender studies" (or "women's studies") courses, which merely function as echo chambers that reinforce an ideological and delusional world-view, lacking any awareness of history.

I've been dimly aware of Paglia, if only by name, since her first book was published in 1990, but have only begun listening to her recently, via online videos, and now this book. What a tremendous oversight! I think I had disregarded her from the start because of the dreaded f-word, but Paglia is a feminist of her own stripe. She describes herself as an equity feminist, and believes that women should have the same opportunities as men, but no special considerations or protections. And she has a deep appreciation for men and all they've done and accomplished throughout history, which is very heartening in these days of socially-acceptable male-bashing. I can't think of anyone else like her, except perhaps Christina Hoff Sommers, whom I have also seen speak but want to read as well.

My only problem with the book is that there is a lot of repetition. With the essays, speeches given, etc. on related topics for diverse sources over the course of 25 years (and not much has changed about feminism over that time, except perhaps for the internet making it even more virulent) she is bound to use the same references, but collected all together and read in one go, it does seem like she harps on the same points over and over. It might be better to dip into it now and again, but Paglia is such a lively and fun speaker/writer that I couldn't put it down. I'd love to read an entirely new, unified work from her. Oh, how I wish she'd been one of my college professors! She teaches in Philadelphia, so perhaps I may yet have a chance to see her. Thank you, Dr. Paglia. ( )

Women will never know who they are until they let men be men. Let’s get rid of Infirmary Feminism, with its bedlam of bellyachers, anorexics, bulimics, depressives, rape victims and incest survivors. Feminism has become a catchall vegetable drawer where bunches of clingy sob sisters can store their moldy neuroses.
