The End of Patriarchy
by Robert Jensen

The pathology of patriarchy, the idea that one group of people should control another—even own them, own even life itself—is at the core of today’s crises.

Robert Jensen’s answer is feminism and a critique of patriarchy.

This work exposes a few open wounds worthy of discussion. For men who believe in feminism and want to be respectful allies, these matters are especially meaningfulErnesto Aguilar, Feminist Current
