Completing a Master’s in Public Affairs doesn’t leave much time for pleasure reading, especially if your favorite fare is feminist philosophy and political theory. Fortunately that’s over (the degree, not feminism), so in between working full-time and continuing to search for my dream job I should be able to scratch the surface of some hefty tomes.
Over winter break I was able to finish Andrea Dworkin’s “Intercourse” (spoiler alert: Her main theme has been wildly misconstrued by those who parrot the “all heterosexual sex is rape” criticism). Shulamith Firestone’s death last August spurred my interest in her “Dialectic of Sex,” so I’ve set it aside as my first reading assignment of the summer. Stay tuned.
