Robert Jensen for "The End of Patriarchy"

  • SubText Books 6 West 5th Street Saint Paul, MN, 55102 United States

Join us on Monday, March 13th at 7pm in the store to hear Robert Jensen read and discuss his new work, "The End of Patriarchy: Radical Feminism for Men." Book signing to follow reading. 

The pathology of patriarchy, the idea that one group of people should control another—even own them, own even life itself—is at the core of today’s crises.

The End of Patriarchy asks one key question: What do we need to create and maintain stable, decent human communities that can remain in a sustainable relationship with the larger living world?

Robert Jensen’s answer is feminism and a critique of patriarchy.

He calls for a radical feminist challenge to institutionalized male dominance; an uncompromising rejection of men’s assertion of a right to control women’s sexuality and reproduction; and a demand for an end to the violence and coercion that are at the heart of all systems of domination and subordination.

The End of Patriarchy makes a powerful argument that a socially just society requires no less than a radical feminist overhaul of the dominant patriarchal structures.
