Description

From the fiery intellectual provocateur—and
fearless advocate of gender equality—a
brilliant, urgent essay collection that both
celebrates modern feminism and challenges
us to build an alliance of strong women and
strong men. Whether asking if all men are
obsolete or championing a more discerning
standard of beauty that goes beyond the
quest for eternal youth, Paglia can always
be counted on to get a discussion started. At
once illuminating, witty and inspiring, these
essays are essential reading that affirms
what men and women can accomplish
together.
Camille Paglia is the author of Glittering
Images, Vamps & Tramps and Sexual
Personae.
