Talking Back to the Patriarchy

Talking Back to the Patriarchy <p>Abstract:</p><p>Ann Snitow challenges a common misreading of the U.S. feminist past as "strict, puritanical earnestness," offering a personal, potted history of other feminist tones of voice used in response to tireless sexism and relentless sexual harassment. Tone is an elusive subject, but in each social context, feminists seek a language to be believed, using tones of voice that are currently available. This earlier radical feminism was full of high spirits and sweeping demands, providing a valuable legacy for today in the challenge to continually reinvent a more complex, resistant, and sexually curious feminism. Snitow concludes with a reader&apos;s guide of recent commentary on #MeToo.</p> http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Dissent University of Pennsylvania Press
