Description - The End of Patriarchy by Robert Jensen
The pathology of patriarchy, the idea that one group of people should control another -- even own them, own even life itself -- is at the core of todays crises. The book asks one key question: What do we need to create and maintain stable, decent human communities that can remain in a sustainable relationship with the larger living world? Robert Jensens answer is feminism and a critique of patriarchy. He calls for a radical feminist challenge to institutionalised male dominance; an uncompromising rejection of mens assertion of a right to control womens sexuality and reproduction; and a demand for an end to the violence and coercion that are at the heart of all systems of domination and subordination. The book makes a powerful argument that a socially just society requires no less than a radical feminist overhaul of the dominant patriarchal structures.
