A sensation upon its publication in 1970, Sexual Politics documents the subjugation of women in great literature and art. Beginning in 1830 and targeting four revered authorsD. H. Lawrence, Henry Miller, Norman Mailer, and Jean GenetKate Millett builds a damning profile of literature’s patriarchal myths and their extension into psychology, philosophy, and politics. Her eloquence and popular examples taught a generation to recognize inequities masquerading as nature and proved the value of feminist critique in all facets of life. This new edition features Catharine A. Mackinnon (University of Michigan Law School) and New Yorker correspondent Rebecca Mead on the importance of Millett’s work to challenging the complacency currently sidelining feminism.
