Berkeley Arts & Letters: Camille Paglia
March 21, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm$12
From the fiery intellectual provocateur: a brilliant essay collection that both celebrates and challenges modern feminism — from motherhood to Madonna, football to Friedan, stilettos to Steinem.
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: Free Women, Free Men. 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.
