Book #6 – Cunt: A Declaration of Independence

by Inga Muscio


Inga Muscio does a great job hitting all the feminist-sexual high points (um. as it were.). As well as the good stuff, she covers rape, abortion, assault… you wouldn’t think this would be an empowering series of topics, but it is. I don’t know anyone (any female anyone, at least) who hasn’t felt cheered by the way Ms. Muscio tackles the topics in this book.

Muscio covers similar territory to Riane Eisler, but in a more accessible, less directly pagan way. She tells a good tale, with outrage and anecdote in appropriate spots and lots of practical advice — this is more a manifesto than a rant. You’ll be buying sex toys and kicking ass in no time after you pick up this book.
