Camille Paglia: Free Women, Free Men
O, the great goddess Camille Paglia. Everytime i see her talk, i felt America still have hope.
The groundbreaking author of “Sexual Personae” will talk about her new collection of essays, “Free Women, Free Men: Sex, Gender, Feminism” that both celebrates and challenges modern feminism.
When Camille Paglia first burst onto the scene with her best-selling “Sexual Personae,” she established herself as a smart, fearless, and often dissenting voice among feminists. Now, for the first time, her best essays on the subject are gathered together in one concise volume. Whether she's declaring Madonna the future of feminism, asking if men are obsolete, calling for equal opportunity for American women years before the founding of N.O.W., or urging all women to love football, Paglia can always be counted on to get a discussion started. The rock-solid intellectual foundation beneath her fiery words assures her timeless relevance.
Paglia is the University Professor of Humanities and Media Studies at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. A regular contributor to Salon.com, she is the author of “Glittering Images”, “Break, Blow, Burn;”, “Sexual Personae”, “Sex, Art, and American Culture”, and “Vamps and Tramps”.
