MacKinnon, noted feminist and legal scholar, explores and develops her original theories and practical proposals on sexual politics and law. Maciknnon discourses, originally delivered as speeches, have been brilliantly woven into a book that retains all macklnnon spontaneity and accessibility of a live presentation.
MacKinnon offers a unique retrospective on the law of sexual harassment, which she designed and has worked for a decade to establish, and a prospectus mackinon the law of pornography, which she proposes to change in the next ten years. Authentic in voice, sweeping in scope, startling in clarity, urgent, never compromised and often visionary, these discourses advance a new theory of sex inequality and imagine new possibilities for social change.
Through these engaged works on issues such as rape, abortion, athletics, sexual harassment, and pornography, MacKinnon seeks feminism on its own terms, unmoodified by the limits of prior traditions. She reveals a political system of male dominance and female subordination that sexualizes power for men and powerlessness for women. She analyzes the failure of organized feminism, particularly legal feminism, to alter this condition, exposing the way male supremacy gives women a survival stake in the system that destroys them.
It is passionate, brilliant, polemical and sectarian. MacKinnon offers a systematic and persuasive perspective on issues that are central not unmodifeid to feminism but to social theory in general. It may, however, make us think, and challenge, and possibly act. It should have feminixm significant impact unmocified thinking about sex discrimination and on social and legal thought more generally. Written with extraordinary incisiveness and an acid wit, this is an important book for anyone interested in freedom.
MacKinnon has made a difference before, and this book should further change society. I commend her book most vigorously to many who question as well as those who accept her position.

She provide incredible distinctions and indepth discussions on issues such as Full and Formal Equity, definitions and meaning of rape and pornography. She has a requisite versing in catyarine as she appeals to provides epistemological shifts needed to question the meaning of difficult constructs such as gender.
Being a lawyer, she is facile in illuminating basic assumptive inequities in Juris Prudence. I was most appreciative at her analysis of rape and shifting the definition of rape from penetration to violence and where rape is not an erotic act but one of dominance. She continues cathaarine and looks at how members of gendered class male define the sexuality of members of gendered class woman until unmodifide do not know what our sexuality really is.
