From the fiery intellectual provocateur-- and one of our most fearless advocates of gender equality--a brilliant, urgent essay collection that both celebrates modern feminism and challenges us to build an alliance of strong women and strong men.Ever since the release of her seminal first book, Sexual Personae, Camille Paglia has remained one of feminism's most outspoken, independent, and searingly intelligent voices. Now, for the first time, her best essays on the subject are gathered together in one concise volume. Whether she's calling for equal opportunity for American women (years before the founding of the National Organization for Women), championing a more discerning standard of beauty that goes beyond plastic surgery's quest for eternal youth, lauding the liberating force of rock and roll, or demanding free and unfettered speech on university campuses and beyond, Paglia can always be counted on to get to the heart of matters large and small. At once illuminating, witty, and inspiring, these essays are essential reading that affirm the power of men and women and what we can accomplish together.

"'One test of un homme sérieux, ' Christopher Hitchens wrote, 'is that it is possible to learn from him even when one radically disagrees with him.' By this measure, Camille Paglia is une femme sérieuse indeed. . . . If you've forgotten Sexual Personae, or have never read it, Paglia helpfully reprints a few chunks of it in her new essay collection, Free Women, Free Men: Sex, Gender, Feminism. These chunks are fiercely erudite, freewheeling and sex-drenched. . . . Her exegeses are prickly and acute, the Helen Vendler-meets-Patti Smith grad seminar you wanted but never quite got. . . . Her prose can be electric. . . . [Paglia is] a fearless public intellectual and more necessary than ever."
