OK, I've just started on Dworkin's "Pornography: Men Possessing Women". So far, absolutely love it.

Anyway, the book recommendations threads usually throw up the same books; Living Dolls, The Equality Illusion and so forth. These are all very good, and what not, but I'm beginning to find them a little "Feminist Lite" So, how about a thread of Radical Feminist book recommendations? grin

Sheila Jeffries, 'Beauty and Misogyny'. She writes really well.

Female Chauvinist Pigs is fab, I think. And older texts like The Feminine Mystique still have a lot to teach us. I also like Susan Faludi's Backlash- I bet it would be even more hard-hitting if she wrote it today sad.

http://radfem.org/ This is a link for a free download of many radical feminist books. I am currently reading Andrea Dworkins Intercourse which is great. Planning to read Right Wing Women after that as I have read some great quotes from it.
