The End of Patriarchy asks one key question: what do we need to create stable and decent human communities that can thrive 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 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.
“Author Robert Jensen bravely shared a bold deliberation on the insidious impacts of patriarchy that permeates every society, from appalling violence to complicit silence or implicit acceptance in the mass cultures. This book is an invitation for both men and women to reflect and examine together the deep-seeded issues that plague our world with greed, wars and strife.”
