Patriarchy is the water that we swim in, and it is poisonous and rank. Unless we see that, how can we ever escape into fresh clean air? In this lucid, balanced and immaculately argued book, Robert Jensen builds his caseinexorably towards answering the biggest questions of our lives. Can we re-discover an equal society for humans? Can we live on this earth? We did once, and we can again. This is a book of hope. - Steve Biddulph AM, author of The New Manhood At a time when much of what passes for feminism is actually a neo-liberal approach that privileges individual empowerment over revolutionary social change, Robert Jensen comes out with a much-needed book that is bound to put the radical back in feminism. His insightful analysis, unflinching commitment to radical feminism, and his courageous call to eradicate patriarchy makes The End of Patriarchy: Radical Feminism for Men a refreshing and bold text. Gail Dines, Professor of Sociology and Women's Studies, Wheelock College, and author of Pornland: How Porn has Hijacked our Sexuality Gail Dines, Professor of Sociology and Women's Studies, Wheelock College, and author of Pornland: How Porn has Hijacked our Sexuality Drawing on his many years of work, challenging toxic masculinity and the 'pathology of patriarchy', Robert Jensen shows what it really means in both political and deeply personal ways for men to support an end to systems of male dominance. Any man who considers himself an ally of the feminist movement should read this book. And then they should encourage every man they know to read it too. - Meagan Tyler PhD, Vice-Chancellors Research Fellow, RMIT University, and co-editor of Freedom Fallacy: The limits of liberal feminism.
