I've been meaning to read this for ages, and I can't remember what actually prompted me to add it to my library reservations. Anyway, it came through. It's a collection of Dworkin's speeches on the theme of male violence against women in society, from rape culture through to psychological abuse and denigration.

It's sharp and eloquent, but never vengeful or man-hating. Despite being written nearly 40 years ago, and despite me thinking how wonderful and equal the world is for my generation of women, it did leave me occasionally questioning just how far we've really come.

Good *and* worthy :)
