How can women create a meaningful and joyous life for themselves? Is it enough to be equal with men? In this book, Drucilla Cornell argues that women should transcend the quest for equality and focus on what she shows is a far more radical project: achieving freedom. Cornell takes us on an exploration of what it would mean for women politically, legally, and culturally, if we took this ideal of freedom seriously. She takes stands on such subjects as abortion, prostitution, pornography, same-sex marriage, international human rights, and the rights and obligations of fathers. She also engages with what it means to be free on a theoretical level, drawing on the ideas of such thinkers as Kant, Rawls, Ronald Dworkin, Hegel and Lacan.
Dangerous Desire: Literature of Sexual Freedom and Sexual Violence Since the Sixties [Repost]

Dangerous Desire: Literature of Sexual Freedom and Sexual Violence Since the Sixties by Pamela Barnett
Routledge | September 30, 2004 | English | ISBN: 0415970504 | 224 pages | PDF | 1 MB

Dangerous Desire is an important work that calls attention to how post-1960s literary representations of rape have shaped the ways in which both sexual and social freedoms are imagined in American culture. Exploring key post-sixties texts including Cleaver's Soul on Ice , Brownmiller's Against Our Will , French's The Women's Room, Naylor's The Women of Brewster Place, Walker's Meridian, and Dickey's Deliverance, Barnett finds that the widespread literary explorations of rape were almost always conjoined with one or more of the radical social movements of the sixties: civil rights, black nationalism, women's liberation and black feminism.
Dangerous Brown Men: Exploiting Sex, Violence and Feminism in the 'War on the Terror'

Dangerous Brown Men: Exploiting Sex, Violence and Feminism in the 'War on the Terror' by Gargi Bhattacharyya
Zed Books | August 19, 2008 | English | ISBN: 184277879X | 192 pages | PDF | 693 KB

In this book, Gargi Bhattacharyya examines the way in which western imperial violence associates itself with the rhetoric of rights and democracy–a project of bombing for freedom that calls into question the validity of western conceptions of democracy, rights and feminism. Such rhetoric has accompanied actions that go beyond simply protecting western interests or securing access to scarce resources. The articulations of racism that appear with the war on terror are animated by fears and sexual fantasies inexplicable by rational interest alone.
