She becomes the symbol of this and that: mother of the earth, slut of the universe and in the making, her humanity is destroyed. ~Andrea Dworkin Patriarchy is a universal system in which women are dominated.

Yet as Andrea Dworkin so neatly stated, subjugation often takes more devious forms, through the stereotyping of gender roles, attempts to “fix” women by stereotyping them as spineless “natural homemakers” or monstrous hideous figures and thereby justifying patriarchy...   [tags: Shyam Selvadurai Pigs Can't Fly Papers]
