Catherine A. Mackinnon – Feminism Unmodified; discourses on life and law

“The task of radical feminist theory is to overthrow the rules and regulations, the prejudices of the masters, and to create theory from women’s experience. ‘We regard our personal experience, and our feelings about that experience, as the basis for an analysis of our common situation. We cannot rely on existing ideologies as they are all products of male supremacist culture’. It is not easy for radical and lesbian feminist theorists to accept that the ideas of men who have not only been raised under male dominance but show that they hold all patriarchal prejudices intact are really useful for those seeking to overturn male power.”
