Quote Bullet

Sexism is the foundation on which all tyranny is built. Every social form of hierarchy and abuse is modeled on male-over-female domination.
~ Andrea Dworkin - [Sex]

The genius of any slave system is found in the dynamics which isolate slaves from each other, obscure the reality of a common condition, and make united rebellion against the oppressor inconceivable.
~ Andrea Dworkin - [Slavery]

Quote Bullet

For a mother the project of raising a boy is the most fulfilling project she can hope for. She can watch him, as a child, play the games she was not allowed to play; she can invest in him her ideas, aspirations, ambitions, and values -- or whatever she has left of them; she can watch her son, who came from her flesh and whose life was sustained by her work and devotion, embody her in the world. So while the project of raising a boy is fraught with ambivalence and leads inevitably to bitterness, it is the only project that allows a woman to be -- to be through her son, to live through her son.
~ Andrea Dworkin - [Sons]

Quote Bullet

Men are rewarded for learning the practice of violence in virtually any sphere of activity by money, admiration, recognition, respect, and the genuflection of others honoring their sacred and proven masculinity. In male culture, police are heroic and so are outlaws; males who enforce standards are heroic and so are those who violate them.
~ Andrea Dworkin - [Violence]

Quote Bullet

Poetry, the genre of purest beauty, was born of a truncated woman: her head severed from her body with a sword, a symbolic penis.
~ Andrea Dworkin - [Poetry and Poets]

Quote Bullet

Women, for centuries not having access to pornography and now unable to bear looking at the muck on the supermarket shelves, are astonished. Women do not believe that men believe what pornography says about women. But they do. From the worst to the best of them, they do.
~ Andrea Dworkin - [Pornography]

Quote Bullet

All personal, psychological, social, and institutionalized domination on this earth can be traced back to its source: the phallic identities of men.
~ Andrea Dworkin - [Power]

Quote Bullet

Childbearing is glorified in part because women die from it.
~ Andrea Dworkin - [Pregnancy]

Quote Bullet

Seduction is often difficult to distinguish from rape. In seduction, the rapist often bothers to buy a bottle of wine.
~ Andrea Dworkin - [Seduction]

Quote Bullet

Undernourished, intelligence becomes like the bloated belly of a starving child: swollen, filled with nothing the body can use.
~ Andrea Dworkin - [Intelligence and Intellectuals]

Quote Bullet

Being a Jew, one learns to believe in the reality of cruelty and one learns to recognize indifference to human suffering as a fact.
~ Andrea Dworkin - [Judaism and Jews]

Quote Bullet

Male supremacy is fused into the language, so that every sentence both heralds and affirms it.
~ Andrea Dworkin - [Language]

Quote Bullet

Romantic love, in pornography as in life, is the mythic celebration of female negation. For a woman, love is defined as her willingness to submit to her own annihilation. The proof of love is that she is willing to be destroyed by the one whom she loves, for his sake. For the woman, love is always self-sacrifice, the sacrifice of identity, will, and bodily integrity, in order to fulfill and redeem the masculinity of her lover.
~ Andrea Dworkin - [Love]

Quote Bullet

Marriage as an institution developed from rape as a practice. Rape, originally defined as abduction, became marriage by capture. Marriage meant the taking was to extend in time, to be not only use of but possession of, or ownership.
~ Andrea Dworkin - [Marriage]

Quote Bullet

In this society, the norm of masculinity is phallic aggression. Male sexuality is, by definition, intensely and rigidly phallic. A man's identity is located in his conception of himself as the possessor of a phallus; a man's worth is located in his pride in phallic identity. The main characteristic of phallic identity is that worth is entirely contingent on the possession of a phallus. Since men have no other criteria for worth, no other notion of identity, those who do not have phalluses are not recognized as fully human.
~ Andrea Dworkin - [Men]

Quote Bullet

Only when manhood is dead -- and it will perish when ravaged femininity no longer sustains it -- only then will we know what it is to be free.
~ Andrea Dworkin - [Men]

Quote Bullet

Women are an enslaved population -- the crop we harvest is children, the fields we work are houses. Women are forced into committing sexual acts with men that violate integrity because the universal religion -- contempt for women -- has as its first commandment that women exist purely as sexual fodder for men.
~ Andrea Dworkin - [Men and Women]

Quote Bullet

Money speaks, but it speaks with a male voice.
~ Andrea Dworkin - [Money]

Quote Bullet

The fact that we are all trained to be mothers from infancy on means that we are all trained to devote our lives to men, whether they are our sons or not; that we are all trained to force other women to exemplify the lack of qualities which characterizes the cultural construct of femininity.
~ Andrea Dworkin - [Mothers]
