Camille Paglia has been called the "anti-feminist feminist" for decades but she's not one to back down.I like this part, too:
As a self-proclaimed "leader of the dissident wing of feminism," she maintains that her arguments with what she calls "mainstream feminists" are necessary to shake up a movement she sees as stuck in near-religious ideologies.
In Paglia's recent collection of writings from 1990 to today, Free Women, Free Men: Sex, Gender, Feminism, she argues "[w]omen will never know who they are until they let men be men."
Her key message to feminists: "Stop blaming men."
Paglia's advice to young women wanting to succeed in today's world:
"They should model their persona on me and on fellow Amazon feminists of the 1960s," says Paglia, "which is that you are responsible for how people treat you."
