H47 Al Garthwaite and Penny Florence have helped me to present my ideas more clearly, and their knowledge and understanding of contemporary feminist debates and ideas have been invaluable. I have also been lucky to have had the tireless support of Jane Howarth and Jill da Silva, who have typed and retyped the manuscript; and of Helen Thompson and Stuart MacWilliam, who have helped to track down many elusive references. My Department at the University of Exeter kindly provided a small grant for the final stages of the work. My colleagues over the years have been very supportive, and I am particularly grateful to Judy Worsnop, Anne Goldthorpe and Lorraine Radford who have all been greatly inconvenienced by the writing of this book. And for Lynne Bell, who has had to endure this project more than anyone, much love. Firstly, to explore the specifically sexual, and dynamic, process whereby men have, and maintain, dominance over women. Secondly, in the light of this, to re-examine the early modern witch-hunts in England. I use what may be called a revolutionary feminist approach. Men have, and maintain, power over women in many different ways and at many different levels: In the context of male supremacy, male and female sexualities are constructed as specifically different and unequal. We can see this process especially clearly within pornography, and it is acted out within heterosexual relations: But this process is more generalised than even these examples suggest, it is integral to all male-female relations within male supremacy. Moreover, it is what makes male supremacy unique and especially enduring. Male domination over women may be appear to be natural, but this is not the case. Men have to actively maintain and perpetuate their power over women. This takes place, as in the maintenance of 1 2 Lewd women and wicked witches any social order, by pressure to consent, including force, the threat of force and ideological pressures. But the system of male domination over women is uniquely different from other systems of power because it relies on the eroticisation of inequality between men and women, and enforces control of women by the use, as well as threat, of male sexual violence against women. In particular, and at the present time, male sexuality is constructed so as to control women socially. But this is too simplistic. In male-female relations it is the social meaning attached to biology which is important, rather than actual biological features, and sex is therefore gendered. In this sense sex and gender become interchangeable, which is how I shall use them here. But this is incorrect. Sexual behaviour is socially constructed, and I use these terms to denote particular social constructs and social relationships. In the context of male supremacy, men and women experience male-female relations differently, but also generally as mediated via the dominant male view. In other words, to analyse and understand male supremacy we need to study men: For instance, when we examine male violence against women we have to look at men, that is, the perpetrators, if we are to understand comprehensively why men sexually violate women, and what to do to counter this see Scully Certain features characteristic of the maledominated social order do seem to persist over time, but the actual expressions of these features are historically specific and subject to change. What is important is that, in terms of the material examined from both twentieth-century and early modern sixteenthand seventeenth-century England, the persistent features include masculinity and femininity as sexual constructs and the use of sexual violence as a means of social control by men over women, yet the form these take differs between the two periods. Indeed, it is partly because features such as masculinity and femininity are subject to change that male dominance as a social order is so enduring: I have chosen to focus on the early modern witch-hunts because of the apparent importance of this phenomenon to male-female relations during the early modern period. The witch-hunts entailed the prosecution, imprisonment and execution of thousands of people, almost exclusively women, in England alone. Not only were the vast majority of the accused women, but they tended to be a particular group of women: Reading accounts of sixteenth- and seventeenth-century England I was struck by the enormity and importance of the witch-hunts as an obviously 4 Lewd women and wicked witches gendered phenomenon. I was also struck by the lack of interpretation of the witch-hunts in relation to gender, and the way writers have tended to treat these persecutions and many other contemporary social features, such as the changing economy, as entirely separate topics without making any attempts to link these see Larner ; Trevor-Roper By examining some of the particularly important contextual areas which form the background to the witch-hunts, such as the period prior to the hunts, demographic, economic and ideological features of the actual witchhunt period, and also the decline of the persecutions, we can see that sixteenth-and seventeenth-century England was a period of great change, as well as deep-rooted gender inequality. I show that there are important links between the witch-hunts, the changing circumstances, and male-female relations. By reference to the context of the witch-hunts it may be argued that the persecutions served as a means of social control of women at a time of great social change, and when men were actively pursuing the more lucrative and influential positions within the emerging capitalist economy. Indeed the witch-hunts may be seen as an instance of sexual violence against women, relying on sexual constructs of masculinity and especially femininity, and they constituted an important part of the dynamics of male domination in sixteenth- and seventeenth-century England. The subject matter of this book is closely associated with my own biography and development as a feminist: But socialist and Marxist The introduction 5 feminist theories, based largely or ultimately on analysis of capitalist production, were unable to come up with adequate answers. It was extremely difficult to provide an analysis of male violence against women within this framework without reliance on radical, and especially revolutionary, feminist theory London Rape Action Group ; Hanmer ; Katyachild et al. In response to feminist criticism some men were changing their behaviour; but the outcome was often a more devious and hidden means of ensuring their continuing control and power in relation to women however unconscious , rather than an undermining of male dominance Leonard ; Hester ; Mitchell ; Rowbotham I found that an analysis taking production as its starting point was inadequate for explaining these complex gender relations. Within this framework women are oppressed by men as a group, rather than by the economic system or by society. Revolutionary feminism developed in this apparent vacuum. The influence of early radical largely American feminist writings can be seen in the revolutionary feminist papers and articles, including the ideas and discussions of Redstockings , New York Radical Lesbians , Shulamith Firestone and Kate Millett Radical and revolutionary feminist approaches overlap, but there are also differences. The introduction 7 An important focus for the development of revolutionary feminist theory during the s has been the Patriarchy Study Group see Coveney et al. Analysis of these rather horrifying and seemingly perverse activities, amongst many other issues, led us to realise that male sexuality, as it is currently constructed, is about power. We decided that male sexuality often appears to be perverse because it is perverse. In other words, it is about constructing men as powerful in relation to women and about constructing some men as powerful in relation to other men , that is, about inequality rather than equality. We concluded that male sexuality is constructed so as to control women socially, acted out in heterosexual relationships as well as in rape, pornography and other forms of male sexual violence against women. This book documents the construction of sexuality for the social control of women and the empowering of men both today and in the early modern period, examining male sexual violence and heterosexual relations in order to do so, and I begin by discussing some of the important issues raised by Marxist and socialist feminist analyses of male domination. Already the Marxist analysis of capitalist production incorporated the notion of exploitation and inequality at its centre and it was presumed that it could also be extended to analyse the specific, and oppressed, position of women. An attempt was also made to overcome the economic reductionism of these approaches by theorising patriarchy at the level of ideology, that is, to see patriarchy as part of the reproduction of ideas separate from the capitalist sphere Mitchell As Michele Barrett explains: Marxism, constituted as it is around relations of appropriation and exploitation, is grounded in concepts that do not and could not address directly the gender of the exploiters and those whose labour is appropriated. Barrett This approach is exemplified by the work of Zillah Eisenstein and Heidi Hartmann ; and in different ways also by Christine Delphy , , Cynthia Cockburn and Sylvia Walby This is exemplified by the work of Chris Weedon In this chapter I will discuss the dual systems approaches of Eisenstein, Hartmann and Walby, and the post-structuralist approach of Weedon to examine the issues and problems that they raise with regard to the maintenance and perpetuation of male domination. But, if patriarchy existed before capitalism, and continues in post-capitalist societies, as Eisenstein and Hartmann both suggest, then patriarchy appears to be much more persistent than any economic mode of production, also adaptable and probably dynamic. I want to examine how Eisenstein and Hartmann, in their respective approaches, deal with this problem. It provides the sexual hierarchical ordering of society while capitalism in turn feeds off this hierarchy. She suggests that the relationship between the two systems may not be altogether smooth, although the unequal gender relations remain in both because of the sexual division of labour which cuts across them. She describes how, as patriarchal control in the privatised family diminishes as has happened historically , the same sexual hierarchy is in turn transferred to capitalist relations such that male dominance is maintained: As women increasingly enter the labour force, some of the control of patriarchal familial relations seems to be undermined. This is compensated for such that…the ghettoisation of women within the labour force at the same time maintains a system of hierarchical control of women both sexually and economically, which leaves the sexual hierarchy of the society intact Eisenstein The stage where this will take place is the productive sphere because the point for transformation of both capitalism and patriarchy is the sexual hierarchy of society as sexual division of labour. On the one hand she is suggesting that capitalism and patriarchy are intertwined into one system—capitalist patriarchy—while she is also suggesting that battle has to be done against both capitalism and patriarchy, that is, as two separate systems. These ambiguities are similarly reflected in her later work As Eisenstein points out: However, this does not take into account conflicts between men, and between men and women which are exhibited within the workplace, a criticism which may also be levelled at dual labour market theory and Marxist theory more generally. Cockburn found, in her research on technological changes in the printing industry, that while male employers and male workers alike adhere to the notion of male superiority and female inferiority, this may at the same time become part of the antagonism between them. Employers have wanted to use female labour because it is cheap, while male workers have organised fierce campaigns to keep women out of printing so as not to undermine their position as men. This conflict was apparent, for example, in the Scottish printing industry in the late nineteenth century. The print workers could, of course, have organised together with the women, to make their mutual position as workers stronger. Both Eisenstein and Hartmann see patriarchy as hierarchical, but Hartmann is also more explicit about the social relations involved in the maintenance of patriarchy. She sees patriarchy as: By emphasising social relations between men, especially hierarchical relations between them, Hartmann goes some way towards being able to deal with the example from Cockburn, of conflict between different men, outlined above. It may be possible to extend this idea to cover racial divisions between men as well, although Hartmann does not attempt to do so. Her definition does, however, incorporate men generally as the dominant group. In an early aspect of her work she also begins to tackle the way in which social relations between men and women operate, showing how men use a number of strategies to maintain their power over women in the labour market, the most important of which is organised male activity through trade unions. As others have shown, trade unions have been instrumental in maintaining job segregation by sex, gendered wage differentials and in excluding women entirely from certain areas of employment Beechey This is a more sophisticated analysis than that provided by Eisenstein because it allows for a more conflictual and therefore dynamic conceptualisation of male dominance and its perpetuation. This conflict was resolved by the institution of the family wage, which ensured that women were paid a lower wage than men. However, by focusing on the family wage and wage differentials between men and women, Hartmann is limiting the usefulness of her concept of patriarchy. For a start, the family wage, however important ideologically, has never been a generalised reality and many women especially working-class women have had to work in paid employment as a result Barrett and McIntosh Young suggests that the one conceptual system, of capitalist patriarchy, should have the oppression of women as a core attribute. Eisenstein and Hartmann, by their discussion of the sexual division of labour, family wage and wage differentials, do begin to 14 Lewd women and wicked witches look at ways in which patriarchy manages to persist and to incorporate a notion of historical change in their analyses. It is a pity that Hartmann, who does begin to deal with these questions in her examination of male-female conflict, does not make them central to her analysis. Other feminists, such as Cynthia Cockburn and Sylvia Walby , , also look at possible links between capitalism and patriarchy, but in addition take a more sophisticated and dynamic approach. I will now go on to examine their approaches. She looks at the attempt by employers to de-skill compositors through the introduction of technology, and how, at the same time, the compositors attempt to maintain their power over women. She is aware of patriarchal contradictions and conflicts, although ends up with a primarily economic class analysis which does not take male-female relations entirely into account Even so, Brothers provides a very useful examination of the effect of male-female relations on the relations between men, which takes both economic class solidarity and economic class struggle into consideration. And Cockburn shows some important ways in which male workers maintain their general dominance over women. Cockburn Patriarchy is also the social order preferred by many of the compositors whom Cockburn interviewed. Some aspects of patriarchy are becoming less important, for example, the family with its male head is becoming less frequent as women gain independent earnings or other means of income, and as women bring up children on their own. Sexual violence is also on the increase. By this she probably means the dominance of men generally over women rather than dominance by fathers, although the term is not explained. This allows her to examine some of the ways men maintain power over women. Class relations are important, she argues, for understanding the relations between print workers and their bosses. Indeed Cockburn does not always use her own evidence to the fullest extent, a point I will come back to later. The concept of the family wage 16 Lewd women and wicked witches has for a long time been used by print workers as part of their bargaining with employers for higher wages, and to keep women out of compositing. Cockburn shows that in order to make the printing industry more profitable new technology started to be introduced in Britain in the s. The new ways of compositing require much less brute strength than was the case with the former hot metal process, and also less mechanical knowledge and skills associated with the use of machinery. The hot metal process was undeniably male. As a result the men are caught in a contradiction: Cockburn argues that masculinity is useful to capital because it helps to fill the mass of labouring jobs. In this way Cockburn tends to end up with a somewhat similar analysis to that of Hartmann. This is, of course, a very different interpretation from that of radical feminists such as Mary Daly, who argue that it is specifically women who pose a threat to men Daly There is no doubt that the social relations between men which both Cockburn and Hartmann outline are very important considerations. As she shows, maintaining masculine status is essential to the compositors in their struggle with employers, and in this instance masculine status is mainly achieved by excluding women from that area of printing. As Cockburn explains: The social currency of the composing room is women and woman-objectifying talk, from sexual expletives and innuendo through to narrations of exploits and fantasies. Even the computer is used to produce life-size print-outs of naked women. This allows her to relate economic change to conflict between men and women, and to show that men actively maintain their power over women. Her work also begins to identify the mechanisms men use to maintain power, all of which, I suggest, serve to belittle women: Like Hartmann she separates out the different systems of gender, class, as well as race, because in this way they can all be taken fully into account These three systems are deemed to exist at all levels of the social formation, with patriarchy being especially crucial to an understanding of gender inequality. Unlike Iris Young , Walby thus argues that separation of the systems is possible, and indeed necessary, because they are distinct—patriarchy is a system in which men exploit women, while capitalism is a system in which capital expropriates wage labourers, and racism cannot be derived from either of these systems. In her earlier work, Patriarchy at Work , Walby focuses on the link between the capitalist and patriarchal systems, while in her more recent work, Theorising Patriarchy , she provides a detailed account of the patriarchal system. The six structures are: She sees the state as reflecting the often contradictory systems of patriarchy, capitalism and racism, and argues that the state has in recent times facilitated the change in the form of patriarchal control from a private to a more public control of women. For her understanding of sexuality Walby draws mainly from radical feminist work, seeing the institution of heterosexuality as a means of social control of women by men Rich , but also arguing that changes in heterosexuality have had positive outcomes for women, for instance around sexual liberalisation and birth control. Where patriarchal culture is concerned, Walby uses a radical feminist version of discourse theory, but tempered by consideration of interconnections with the other patriarchal structures. This leads her to see the construction of femininity and masculity as situated everywhere, and not merely in childhood or within sexuality. She argues convincingly that masculinity and femininity have changed over time, with masculinity constructed as paramount throughout. But by seeing patriarchy, capitalism and racism as separate systems, Walby is also in danger of not considering all aspects of social relations as gendered, as they surely are: She underestimates the part the process of sexualising or eroticising plays within the construction and positioning of men as more important and powerful than women. She similarly underestimates the impact of male violence on the construction of men as dominant. Ultimately, patriarchy prevails whether male capitalists or male workers win, leaving women subordinate to and dependent on men. Taking up the issue of historical change, Walby suggests that the household as a site of production relations is now declining as women have moved increasingly into paid work. In response to the inroads made by women into paid work, there has also been a change in the sexual control by individual husbands or fathers to a more diffuse public control of women involving, for instance, an increase in pornography. Walby concludes that the degree of patriarchy has changed—indeed it has been slightly reduced—but at the same time the form of patriarchy has also changed Walby One ends up with a picture where what patriarchy loses on the swings it largely regains on the roundabouts. It allows Walby to see the process of male domination as one of conflict between men and women, but does not allow her to look more closely at this process, whereby men have managed to maintain power over women for so long.

Oxford University Press is a department of the University of Oxford. It furthers the University's objective of excellence in research, scholarship, and education by publishing worldwide. But in practice it is virtually impossible Domination dynamics in lewd male study wicked witch woman a woman to prove that she has been raped without additional physical evidence, such as extensive evidence of violence bruising, cuts, etc.

London Rape Crisis Centre ; Stanko This is also part of the reason why, even though rape is apparently continue reading in our society, in practice rapists are seldom convicted. Violence and sex are both important notions in understanding rape, but not in the way suggested by the law, although the law and state practice provide important pointers to an explanation of rape.

I want to argue that rape is actually an act of sexual violence that can only exist in a context where sexuality generally is constructed as, and acted out as, a power relation, that is as dominance and submission.

In terms of the law on rape an even greater problem is the notion of consent. Some feminists, such as Brownmiller, argue that women may consent to heterosexual intercourse, while recognising that there is also a general expectation here women should have, or should submit to, intercourse within a male-dominant context.

This expectation has, for example, been instituted in marriage, which is why the rape legislation has historically exempted the marriage relationship. This has only visit web page, as a result of feminist pressure, begun to be changed L.

Kelly Brownmiller defines rape as primarily heterosexual intercourse where the woman concerned has not agreed to, or chosen, the act: A female definition of rape can be contained in a single sentence. If a woman chooses not to have intercourse with a specific man and the man chooses to proceed against her will, that is a criminal act of rape.

The implication is that there is an acceptable normal heterosexuality as well as an unacceptable abnormal heterosexuality. This unfortunately bears a resemblance to the legal definition of rape. Her examples emphasise this notion of rape as violence. She looks at Domination dynamics in lewd male study wicked witch woman in war, in riots and revolutions, in the context of racism, in prison, and as sexual abuse of children.

These are all presented as common, but extreme and extraordinary events. None the less, her documentation of rape presents some interesting points regarding rape and power, as well as criticising some of the myths about rape. Secondly, she suggests that it is Domination dynamics in lewd male study wicked witch woman situations of extreme power discrepancy between men and women that rape takes place.

As a result she presents the rapist Domination dynamics in lewd male study wicked witch woman prevalent in only particular socio-economic and racial groups: This conclusion is both classist and racist but also sits uneasily with her emphasis on all men keeping all women in a state of fear.

These points begin to expose the problems related to an analysis where rape is seen as violence. Of course, it must be recognised that the notion of rape as violence has had an important part to play in the development of a feminist analysis of rape.

Women who have been raped experience this as a violent act, rather than an act of sex which may be defined in other, more pleasant emotional terms. There is no doubt that for women, rape is a violently traumatic act. In saying this it may appear that I am beginning to contradict myself. But it does not necessarily tell us why men rape.

By reference to some of this material, I want to consider why rape should be seen as sex rather than merely as violence. It was suggested earlier that the legal definition and state practice concerning rape presents rape as sex, but requires evidence of violence in order to acknowledge that rape has taken place. This is because rape is seen Domination dynamics in lewd male study wicked witch woman an abnormal sex act between a man and a woman.

As MacKinnon succinctly explains: I propose that the state is male in the feminist sense. The law sees and treats women the way men see and treat women. The liberal state coercively and authoritatively constitutes the social order in here interests of men as a gender, through its legitimizing morals, relation to society, and substantive policies.

MacKinnon a: It is a male-female scenario leading, for the man, to an Domination dynamics in lewd male study wicked witch woman and acceptable situation which includes sex: He asks her to dance. She accepts. He asks her out, she accepts.

He kisses her. He puts his hand on her leg, her breast, her cunt He wants to see how far he can go. He asks her to sleep with him. Or she refuses. He tries to persuade her. He tells her he loves 66 Lewd women and wicked witches her.

He calls her a prude, immature, frigid. Each time they meet he carries on a bit further, a bit further. Why not go all the way? He buys durex to demonstrate his sense of responsibility. He teaches her to suck him off. He works towards his goal, which is her vagina. He means to have, Domination dynamics in lewd male study wicked witch woman possess this woman.

London Rape Action Group The scenario illustrates the way the different experiences of men and women are constructed through interactions within the unequal power context of male-female relations in a male supremacist society.

What women experience as violence, then in accordance with the dominant male definition and construction of the termis actually normal heterosexual sex: Rape is therefore sexual violence. That is also why women who have experienced rape may find it difficult to separate their experience of heterosexual sex generally from that of rape.

As MacKinnon explains: Towards a revolutionary feminist approach 67 A common experience of rape victims is to be unable to feel good about anything heterosexual thereafter—or anything sexual at all, or men at all…That, to me, is sexual.

When a woman has been raped, and it is sex that she cannot then experience, without connecting it to that, it was her sexuality that was violated. MacKinnon, a: The judges would consider the example given earlier of malefemale relations from the London Rape Action Group as a consensual situation, that is, in their terms, not rape but sex. These women know that the state is unlikely to prosecute in most instances of women-defined or women-perceived rape: Maybe they were forced-fucked for years and put up with it, maybe they tried to get Domination dynamics in lewd male study wicked witch woman over with, maybe they were coerced by something other than battery, something like economics, maybe even something like love.

For MacKinnon Domination dynamics in lewd male study wicked witch woman is this eroticisation of dominance which lies at the core of male supremacy, reconstructing and thereby maintaining and perpetuating the male supremacist social order. In this way 68 Lewd women and wicked witches sexuality is not only central to the existence of male supremacy, but rape is an instance of sexual violence. Sexuality is that social process which creates, organizes, expresses, and directs desire, creating the social beings we know as women and men, as their relations create society.

Domination dynamics in lewd male study wicked witch woman In short, rape, as an integral part of heterosexual relations, may also be seen as integral to Domination dynamics in lewd male study wicked witch woman dynamics of male domination.

The effect of rape is to control women socially, and it is men who benefit. This issue has led to much debate regarding whether or not pornography leads to or even increases rape of women by men. Centuries of civilization and ten minutes of common sense tell us otherwise. Katyachild et al. Recent research also backs up this view Everywoman In public hearings on pornography were held in Minneapolis for a Bill, championed by Catharine MacKinnon and Andrea Dworkin, which would define pornography as a violation of the Civil Rights of Women.

At the hearings women and men told of how pornography is used by men both as a direct turn-on and also to provide them with ideas for doing violence to women, to children and sometimes to other men. One woman told how she and other women working as prostitutes were constantly expected to act out scenes from pornograpic magazines or films.

Another woman told of facing racist abuse as part of sexual abuse. Yet another how her boyfriend who later became her husband expected her to act out degrading this web page humiliating, as well as dangerous, poses from pornographic magazines for him to photograph: When we got there he asked me, he told me to take off my clothes and to pose in various positions where I acted as if I was running towards the door.

And then he asked me to put my body in contorted different positions, draped down the stairs of the bus, and they were quite jagged, and at that moment I realized that we were depicting a murder.

I became very terrified and scared and was really cold…. Everywoman Analysing pornography has helped us understand the social construction of male and female behaviour within a male supremacist context, and particularly the notions of objectification and fetishisation as applied to women.

Analysing pornography has also led feminists to further examine the link between brutality and sexual pleasure in the construction of heterosexuality which Millett also outlined. The lobby against censorship argues that extending censorship to pornography would more easily allow the state Domination dynamics in lewd male study wicked witch woman increase censorship in other areas, and that instead we should be arguing for a general freedom with regard to publication see Burstyn But this argument is peculiarly liberal, not radical as it purports to be.

Lack of censorship against pornography is therefore highly unlikely to lead to lack of censorship against other areas of publication. Instead, it is the publication of oppressive material, such as pornography, which is likely to increase. The focus on censorship as the major issue in the debate about pornography is, in any case, a red herring which merely obscures the real issue, that is, male power.

I strongly disagree. This becomes very clear if we examine the nature of pornography more closely. So Towards a revolutionary feminist approach 71 what is pornography? According to Helen Longinopornography is: Longino Pornography includes all forms of visual and verbal humiliation of women for the sexual titillation of men from Page 3 in the Sun newspaper to striptease and flagellation movies, plus the exploitation and humiliation of women for economic gain, e.

In pornography, therefore, as in rape, we see the sexualisation or eroticisation of male-female power relations. Furthermore, pornography presents male-female sexual relations not only as unequal, but as violently so. To recall what Millett argues: Women are the means to such empowerment. The cruel objectification by man sadism as well as the objectified woman the masochist is presented as natural.

Thus women are constructed as eroticised objects in order that men, by comparison, can be constructed as powerful and dominant subjects. It was suggested in the discussion about rape, that sexual violence appears to be integral to what are, within a male supremacist context, defined as normal male-female sexual relations.

Analysing pornography presents a similar picture: Lal Coveney et al. They also show how such constructs become internalised https://tamilinfoservice.com/lip-fetish/article-lorena-herrera-naked.php thereby part of individual Domination dynamics in lewd male study wicked witch woman.

However, Coveney et al. They conclude that: Coveney et al. The Domination dynamics in lewd male study wicked witch woman is that, within the context of male supremacy, crucial to the construction and perpetuation of this unequal social order is the link between male sexual pleasure and male dominance on the one hand, and the sexual objectification and subordination of women on the other.

In this way, for men, inflicting pain can be directly linked to feelings of pleasure.

Objectification, as revealed by pornography but also generally apparent in male-female relations presents a number of resultant paradoxes. Creating woman as a sexual object is meant to ensure that women become powerless relative to Domination dynamics in lewd male study wicked witch woman, but women may not always accept this situation. Moreover, constructing women as sexual objects in turn necessitates the construction of male desire for such objects; although objects are by definition lesser beings to be despised, and may thus taint the desirer.

Yet, Dworkin argues, pornography helps men to gloss over see more problems: In pornography, men express the tenets of their unchanging faith, what they must believe is true of women and of themselves to sustain themselves as they are, to ward off recognition that a constituent to masculinity is a double-edged commitment to both suicide and genocide.

In life the objects are fighting back, rebelling, demanding that every breath be reckoned with as the 74 Lewd women and wicked witches breath of a living person, not a viper trapped under a rock, but an authentic, willful, living being.

In pornography, the object is a slut, https://tamilinfoservice.com/european/web-27-04-2020.php daggers up her vagina and smiling. This may include male sexual arousal from dismembered female bodies; the ultimate example of this being the Snuff movies where women are actually murdered during the production of the film see ibid.: To reiterate, pornography is primarily about men and the empowerment Domination dynamics in lewd male study wicked witch woman men.

Women are the means to such male empowerment, and women as fetish especially so. This eroticisation of inequality is, of course, duplicated by men in relation to other socially inferior groups, children especially and, to some extent also, other men see Ward But it is male-female relations which provides the template.

Sexual desire is another important, and related, aspect which we must consider here. Desire is a socially constructed, and powered, concept which is constructed in the interests of men. As MacKinnon points out sexual desire in women, at least in this culture, is socially constructed as that by which we come to want our selfannihilation.

That is, our subordination is eroticized in and as female; in Domination dynamics in lewd male study wicked witch woman we get off on it to a degree, if nowhere near as much as men do. This is our stake in the system that is killing us.

MacKinnon c: Women learn to want to be objects because they are rewarded with the illusion of power, that is, male approval—although this actually negates their possibility of becoming subjects in their own right. Towards a revolutionary feminist approach 75 Also, women learn to desire men as dominant subjects, which only further entrenches Domination dynamics in lewd male study wicked witch woman subordinate position as objects.

Within the context of male supremacy, therefore, women are constructed to be masochists. Justine Jones discusses this process, drawing on her own experience, and I will briefly refer to her work.

Jones outlines how as a child she played games which linked notions of brutality with notions of the erotic.

Giving a hand job tips

In particular she had learnt to find masochism—both image and in practice—as sexually exciting. Passages from the book came unbidden to my mind when my boyfriend penetrated me and however fast I banished them they worked—I did enjoy it more. Jones Brownmiller, for instance, points out that women at times fantasise about rape, thus perceiving rape as sexually arousing to themselves. Considering that women are constructed and construct themselves within the context of male supremacy not only to be sexual objects, but to perceive male subjects as sexually desirable, it is not surprising that some women fantasise about rape in the manner indicated by Brownmiller.

The fantasy, as well as the sexual desire, are Click here social products of a male supremacist context.

This is also why it is counterproductive for women to endorse, let alone use, pornography within sexual relationships. Pornography can in no way be either liberating or empowering for women, as some claim.

Yet if we apply the analysis presented here, that the eroticisation of male-female relationships, as exemplified by pornography, is fundamental to male domination over women, it also becomes clear that an increase in male sexual violence would be Domination dynamics in lewd male study wicked witch woman obvious backlash against female encroachment on male power.

The particular focus on pornography, which Walby documents, is not only a product of the specific socio-historical context, but also serves to further increase other sexual violence by men against women, and thereby further degrades and constructs women as inferior. This brief discussion of rape and pornography has indicated the crucial importance of sexuality within any analysis of male-female power relations, because sexualisation or eroticisation is fundamental to the construction of unequal male-female relations.

Within these latter approaches the issues of human reproduction and sexuality is usually considered to be a product of social processes, and also increasingly related to the issue of violence against women see Edwards While Marxist and socialist feminist theories criticise the male-orientation of Marxism generally, they still tend to work from within the Marxist framework to develop a more gender-comprehensive approach see Mitchell ; Rowbotham ; Morgan Radical feminism, while developing from a similar place, has moved further beyond Marxism, although still employing the concept of conflictual class relations, as sex class as well as economic class. Men are the oppressor class, to be disempowered through the collective activity of women. Women are often blamed for their own oppression, but this view is rejected by the Redstockings, who argue instead that it is precisely the ongoing subordination which women are subject to that undermines their position, while at the same time benefiting men. As the manifesto states: This has included a stress on the autonomous organisation of women, both in general and also within specific male-dominated organisations see Feminist Practice ; Segal Spender ; L. Spender ; Du Bois I will discuss these approaches below. It has also led to the development of qualitative research methods where women are the subjects rather than merely the objects of research see Stanley and Wise ; Harding ; Duelli Klein ; Eichler Firestone, in The Dialectic of Sex 3, sets out to examine and explain the universality of male dominance by the critical use of theory from Marx and Engels, and Freud, while Millett, in Sexual Politics , examines male dominance by a process of questioning male-female sexual relations in literature written by men. As will be recalled, I take a different approach: This, she suggests, will be done by using technology to free women from child-bearing and by the development of alternatives including homosexual relationships among both sexes to the nuclear family with its existing oppressive gender roles. By interpreting differences between men and women in this way, Firestone ends up with a biologically determinist analysis. In particular, the idea of romance plays an important part in the social construction of women as sexual objects to be used by men rather than as subjects in their own right In this way she begins to examine the role of sexuality in the oppression of women by men, an issue which feminists have focused on to a much greater extent since The Dialectic of Sex. Feminists have encountered this important issue in a number of ways. But using a much more distinctly social approach, where male control over women is seen as the outcome of social constructions regarding motherhood, other feminists have criticised rather than applauded such developments. In short, some feminists fear that women will be seen as redundant once they are no longer needed for what is, in the present male-dominated context, their only really important function Arditti et al. Ultimately, for Freud, the male child wishes to sexually possess his mother in the way he sees his father doing, in order to join the ranks of adult men. As a result he also wishes to kill his father who is in this role already, leading to fear on behalf of the child that the father will castrate him in attempting to repress this wish. This preference does not continue into adulthood because at that point 40 Lewd women and wicked witches the male is himself able to be in a position of power. As Firestone further explains: What finally convinces him is the offer of the world when he grows up. He is asked to make a transition from the state of potentially powerful, son ego extension of his father. Firestone concludes, therefore, that the power hierarchies which exist within the patriarchal nuclear family are maintained by sexual repression. Importantly, she also shows that both male and female sexuality is acted out in a powered context, and is a crucial element of the unequal male-female social relations in our society. She also uses both social and seemingly biologistic interpretations of Freud without clarifying her stance. Not only does this merely relate to culturally and historically specific types of the family and what about single-parent families where the father is absent? Women are not merely dominated by their fathers, but by men generally. Firestone also applies her reinterpretation of Freud to the issue of racism. Power relations between men and women provide the context in which physiological differences of race also become important Following on from this link between racism and sexism, Firestone argues that race relations in America are a reflection of the unequal relationships within the nuclear family such that: This power hierarchy creates the psychology of racism, just as, in the nuclear family, it creates the psychology of sexism. The white woman might, because of her husband, have power over both black men and women. The black man meanwhile has power over the black woman. The black man as a result has three choices: Such an attempt could, but will not necessarily, encompass a wish to become the Father. In this instance the black woman is the Daughter of the white American family. Initially she, like the Son the black man sympathises with the Mother white woman against the Father white man. In rejecting the womanly element in herself, she also develops contempt for the Mother. The black woman, as the Daughter, is faced with two options regarding her powerlessness: Thus black men attempted to carry out option 3 , of the options outlined earlier, whereby the creation of the powerful and masculine black man was concomitant to the creation of the passive black woman. Meanwhile white women and black women were divided against each other, unable to see that they were actually in the same boat. But Firestone and other early radical feminists, such as the Redstockings, were clearly influenced by the black struggles in America during the s. More recently, issues regarding race and ethnicity have also been discussed from this approach. This latter perspective is also the one presented by Firestone. In fact in recent years various women have written about race and ethnicity using radical feminist approaches. These are issues which have taken an increasingly prominent position in more recent feminist literature Dworkin ; Hanmer ; Hanmer and Saunders ; MacKinnon ; Coveney et al. For Millett, men are the group who have power over women by virtue of their birthright as male, a situation that is virtually unique in comparison to other inequalities such as economic class and race, and also extremely durable. This is important because, while male dominance might appear to rest on the physical strength of the male, it actually rests on a particular value system: As Millett explains: Superior physical strength is not a factor in political relations— vide those of race and class. Civilisation has always been able to substitute other methods technic, weaponry, knowledge for those of physical strength, and contemporary civilisation has no further need of it. At present, as in the past, physical exertion is very generally a class factor, those at the bottom performing the most strenuous tasks, whether they be strong or not Millett Following on from these categories are the corresponding sex roles which place women in the domestic setting tied to her biological experience. This is an important notion which has resurfaced in recent feminist literature, including that of revolutionary feminists see Johnston ; Barry ; Leeds Revolutionary Feminist Group The idea of interior colonisation also links to a related aspect of male sexuality—the idea of the penis as a weapon. But in rape that is precisely what men are doing. Millett This is because only 46 Lewd women and wicked witches heterosexual sexuality is constructed as specifically unequal. Indeed the warrior caste of mind with its ultravirility, is more incipiently homosexual, in its exclusively male orientation, than it is overtly homosexual. The Nazi experience is an extreme case in point here. This is an issue which later feminist writings have also taken up Coveney et al. As mentioned earlier, Millett argues that male supremacy has to be upheld either through consent or by force. Patriarchal societies typically link feelings of cruelty with sexuality, the latter often equated both with evil and with power. This is apparent both in the sexual fantasy reported by psychoanalysis and that reported by pornography. For Millett the personal is explicitly political. It is interesting to note that, as a result of her analysis, Millett sees the slackening of censorship as an important factor in the increased use of sexual hostility against women ibid.: This issue has more recently become the focus of debate and feminist activity, exemplified by the attempt by Andrea Dworkin and Catharine MacKinnon to use American Civil Rights legislation against pornography see MacKinnon a: Millett also extends her analysis to social relations generally. By reference to both economic class relations and racial divisions she argues that sexual relations are the more fundamental, but also the least obvious. Sexual factors similarly play an intrinsic part in hierarchical relations between men, both in terms of economic class hierarchy and racial hierarchy. The lower the status of a particular male, the greater his assertion of masculinity. Concomittantly, high-status males place less emphasis on masculinity. Millett expresses these complex relations as follows: The function of class or ethnic mores in patriarchy is largely a matter of how overtly displayed or how loudly enunciated the general ethic of masculine supremacy allows itself to become. Here one is confronted by what appears to be a paradox: In addition to the social construction of male and female behaviour, including sexuality, and the use or threat of force, male supremacy according to Millett is also shored up by differential access to education and employment for men and women. This results in a general lack of knowledge by women compared to men, and also in economic dependency by women on men, which is important because knowledge and power are interlinked. Women are placed in a secondary position within paid employment, their social status determining the status of their work see also Phillips and Taylor Her work conveys excitement and creativity, but is also often difficult to read because of her particular use of language. Daly is presenting one of the earlier examples of contemporary feminist work to argue that male violence acts as a means of controlling women socially, and like Millett , she sees sexuality as a crucial aspect of this. Her examination of the European witchburnings constitutes one of the few feminist analyses of the early modern witch-hunts, and I will discuss this aspect of her work later see Chapter 6. It is a self which male-defined social processes have overlain and thus obscured with all manner of behaviours, feelings, and thoughts, which do not belong to this self Barrett ; Segal ; Weedon Daly obviously wants this focus on the female self to be empowering for women, and to suggest that women could be free if male supremacy is eradicated. Unfortunately in this way her perspective ends up with a similar outcome to biological determinism—that there is a natural femaleness which we should aspire to uncover. As Andrea Nye points out, the problem of language in an unequal society is not with individual words, but with the relationship between words. Therefore changing the language might not fundamentally change anything because the new words take on meanings which reflect unequal male-female relations. If the very structure of meaning depends on sexual difference, then a simple expulsion or reinstatement of meanings may not have the desired effect. If the structure of the language demands hierarchialised gender, then no matter what new words are invented or rediscovered, the same assymetrical relations will eventually reconstitute themselves, as other words shift in meaning to accommodate the addition or deletion. Yet Daly is presenting an important approach, arguing also that male violence is used as a crucial means of controlling women socially see Chapter 5. Naturalness is merely a perception. We need to find out what it is that we know and what it is that we experience. Stanley and Wise Even so, social structures must be taken into account, and they argue that such structures are created in everyday interactions: This leaves Stanley and Wise with a problem, however, because it is unclear why particular structures such as those giving overall power to men are created. Using an ethnomethodological approach also allows for change, because it is possible to construct realities which are in contradiction to those of others, and also possible to see these alternative realities precisely as alternatives. As they explain: Reality disjunctures themselves are situations in which participants become fully aware that the very existence of phenomenon claimed by one is denied by the others. What is very important about this, according to Stanley and Wise, is the way ethnomethodology suggests that we are involved in both our own oppression and our own liberation: Individually we can effect many small changes. In Georgie Porgie Wise and Stanley apply this framework to an analysis of male power. Wise and Stanley Although, because the process of control is interactional rather than structural, the potential outcome of any male-female encounter is very unpredictable. Women may use a number of strategies: I will look at each in turn. In retaliation she shot and killed one of them, and as a result was imprisoned for murder, although released later on appeal. In one of the examples they quote, women used lewd remarks and sexual innuendo to empower themselves against a man who had used the same against them. Besides direct physical violence, there does not actually seem to be much difference between this and the previous category. As Wise and Stanley explain: Avoiding sexual harassment—like not going into pubs on your own or not going to particular places at night by yourself—is also often seen as the complete antithesis of fighting back. But, as we are arguing here as well as earlier in our discussion of power, even though avoidance is constraint of a kind, it is also the rational weighing up of pros and cons to enable sensible decisions to be made. I do not deny that women are actively and consistently opposing male power. On the contrary, there is much evidence to suggest that this is the case, and moreover, as Stanley and Wise state: What is important here is the overriding impression of a sex struggle, a conflict between men and women over power. This clearly negates the collective strategy of the earlier radical feminists such as the Redstockings. Dworkin points out how: She is, in fact, hunted meat—all the male auteurs, scientists, and homespun philosophers on street corners will say so proudly. Attempting to strike a bargain, the woman says: I come to you on your own terms. Her hope is that his murderous attention will focus on a female who conforms less artfully, less willingly. In effect, she ransoms the remains of a life—what is left over after she has renounced wilful individuality—by promising indifference to the fate of other women. This sexual, sociological, and spiritual adaptation, which is, in fact, the maiming of all moral capacity, is the primary imperative of survival for women who live under malesupremacist rule. Dworkin In the following chapters I will more fully discuss the importance of the issues of sexuality and violence to the construction and perpetuation of male domination over women. Chapter 4 Towards a revolutionary feminist approach Male sexual violence against women1 Throughout the s growing feminist, and also public, awareness about the issue of male violence against women, violence specifically directed at women by men, prompted the need for explanation of this phenomenon. Domestic violence and rape were some of the earliest concerns. Evidence from women made it obvious that these experiences were very widespread Katyachild et al. Socialist and Marxist feminists have been unable to deal with the issue of male violence Segal Their class-based analysis suggests that it is certain socio-economic conditions, such as unemployment, which leads men to be violent against women Wilson But this is much too limited, and does not cover the extensive evidence of violence to women, which suggests instead that women from all classes experience violence from men from any class Russell ; Hanmer and Saunders Tim Carrigan et al. And Andy 58 Towards a revolutionary feminist approach 59 Moye has argued that pornography is probably more damaging to men than it is to women see Chapter 5. Others, including revolutionary feminists, have argued that male violence against women in whatever form—harassment, rape, battering etc. Our everyday behaviour reflects our precautions, the measures we take to protect ourselves. We are wary of going out at night, even in our own neighbourhoods. We are warned by men and other women not to trust strangers. But somehow they forget to warn us about the men we know: Many men familiar to us also terrorise our everyday lives in our homes, our schools, our workplaces. Stanko It is important to realise that the work done by feminists concerning male violence against women has laid the basis for understanding the crucial part played by sexuality particularly the social construction of male sexuality in the oppression of women by men. The issue of male violence against women will therefore be examined in this chapter before I go on to develop the concept of male sexuality as social control of women more fully. I will concentrate on the issues of rape and pornography as these show clearly the nature of male violence against women and the role this plays in the oppression of women. In particular it can be seen that rape is about sex as opposed to merely violence, and pornography exemplifies how sadism and masochism are part and parcel of heterosexual behaviour. Kate Millett briefly outlines the use of rape as force in the context of malefemale power relations. Feminists have shown that rape is widely experienced by women. Diana Russell , for instance, in a survey of women in the United States, found that 44 per cent had experienced one or more attempted or actual rapes during their lives, and that 1 in 7 women had been raped by their husbands. On the contrary, they are no different from other men: It is difficult to believe that such widespread violence is the responsibility of a small lunatic fringe of psychopathic men. Allen Griswold Johnson in Stanko Feminists Towards a revolutionary feminist approach 61 generally agree that rape involves social control of women by men, but some argue that rape is violence Brownmiller , while others argue that rape is to do with sexuality MacKinnon , c; Jeffreys The book focuses on two very separate events and periods: While stressing the socio-historical specificity and distinct characteristics of men's and women's lives within the 20th-century on the one hand and the 16th and 17th centuries on the other, she argues that the witch hunts may be seen as an historically specific example of male violence.

However, the witch craze has been subjected to surprisingly little feminist analysis. Accordingly, she shows how witches can be seen as victims of the oppression of a male dominated society. Concentrating on English source material, the author shows how witch-hunts may be seen as an historically specific example of male dominance. Relying on an eroticised construct of women's inferiority, they were part of the ongoing attempt by men to maintain their power over women. Request an e-inspection copy. Share this Title..

The discussion within this particular chapter does, however, leave us with a question regarding the Domination dynamics in lewd male study wicked witch woman between sexuality and violence. By focusing on issues such as rape and pornography, the resultant impression is that oppressive male-female sexual relations perhaps always exhibit a high degree of violence.

This poses the question whether social control of women is necessarily acted out through sexual violence per se. The following chapter takes this issue further, and thereby also questions the more generalised role of male sexuality in the social control of women. The outcome, for men, involves a range of benefits including power and status, economic advantage, as well as emotional and domestic servicing see Hanmer ; Rich ; Mahony MacKinnon, in her well-documented study of Sexual Click here of Working Women shows how this applies within the specific sphere of paid work.

Snugly Videos Watch Maddy oreilly enjoys some interracial sex Video Xxx Boxshin. As Andrea Nye outlines: Here, in his account of the castration complex, Lacan showed how far he had come from biology. The castration complex for girls or for boys is not based on any physical organ or any anatomical fact: Nye For some feminists Lacan was therefore describing things as they really perceived them to be, and the result, especially for French feminists, was to question the symbolic construction of society. This basic conception was in particular developed into an analysis of language. It is argued, that at any moment social reality may be constructed in any number of ways, rather than being tied specifically to the economy, other institutions or structures. Thus, rather than taking a traditional Marxist approach, where the economic structure tends to constrain the development of knowledge, Weedon suggests that the post-structuralist theory allows for infinite variation: For example, the meanings of femininity and masculinity vary from culture to culture and language to language. They even vary between discourses within a particular language, between different feminist discourses, for instance, and are subject to historical change, from Victorian values to the suffrage movement, for example. Weedon Her approach while relying on the general approach already outlined is drawn from a number of sources, of which Foucault is the most important. All these are crucial to a specifically feminist post-structuralism—even though Foucault did not actually address the question of gender and power see Walby It is in the work of Michel Foucault that the poststructuralist principles of the plurality and constant deferral of meaning and the precarious, discoursive structure of subjectivity have been integrated into a theory of language and social power which pays detailed attention to the institutional effects of discourse and its role in the constitution and government of individual subjects. In this sense the development of feminist discourses may be seen as the creation of alternative and challenging discourses. Exactly what form power will take at any time cannot, however, be predicted, because it is historically specific. This is very different therefore from conventional Marxism where power is always related to the means of production and hence is attributed to the ruling class. Human existence generally, including those aspects often perceived as biological or natural and unchanging such as sexuality, are instead a product or construct of the moment Women, perhaps constructed as relatively passive and powerless at one time, may, as subjects, construct themselves as active and powerful; and this overcomes the idea that women are passive victims of patriarchal structures, which other theories suggest. This meant that, in order to be heard, married women were forced to produce alternative forms of power and resistance. Many frustrated women, trapped within unhappy marriages, turned to negative protests, such as illness…[while yet others]…escaped the modes of government of their subjectivity extended to their married sisters [by remaining single]. And the one positive strategy entailed freedom from male possession in marriage. But this kind of interpretation is by no means confined to poststructuralist theory. But her analysis hardly allows for such materiality because of the way social reality in general is theorised as determined by language, or discourse. Deconstruction, a notion largely developed from literary criticism, is the reading of texts to tease out the discoursive contradictions involved. Through deconstruction it is possible to examine the constantly changing construction of meanings, and the plurality of meanings, involved in any discoursive field. But it is not possible, indeed according to some post-structuralists such as Derrida it would be wrong, to assume that men and women have different experiences of the text as men and women. Nor that the sex of the author is of importance, something other writers have claimed Spender This is because, according to poststructuralist theory, the construction of femininity, or masculinity in any individual is only fixed temporarily. On the surface this seems fair enough, but the problem is that eradicating these categories is seen in terms of the present time. That is, an anti-feminist analysis, which obscures the nature of male power, is the result. Pointing out how women and men are constructed within a context of gendered power, she explains further that: But with regard to women, this is not a significantly different position to, nor does it move beyond, those of other feminists who do not use a poststructuralist approach, such as Smith This argument is common to both radical and revolutionary feminism, but it is radical feminism with which I am mainly concerned in this chapter. Within these latter approaches the issues of human reproduction and sexuality is usually considered to be a product of social processes, and also increasingly related to the issue of violence against women see Edwards While Marxist and socialist feminist theories criticise the male-orientation of Marxism generally, they still tend to work from within the Marxist framework to develop a more gender-comprehensive approach see Mitchell ; Rowbotham ; Morgan Radical feminism, while developing from a similar place, has moved further beyond Marxism, although still employing the concept of conflictual class relations, as sex class as well as economic class. Men are the oppressor class, to be disempowered through the collective activity of women. Women are often blamed for their own oppression, but this view is rejected by the Redstockings, who argue instead that it is precisely the ongoing subordination which women are subject to that undermines their position, while at the same time benefiting men. As the manifesto states: This has included a stress on the autonomous organisation of women, both in general and also within specific male-dominated organisations see Feminist Practice ; Segal Spender ; L. Spender ; Du Bois I will discuss these approaches below. It has also led to the development of qualitative research methods where women are the subjects rather than merely the objects of research see Stanley and Wise ; Harding ; Duelli Klein ; Eichler Firestone, in The Dialectic of Sex 3, sets out to examine and explain the universality of male dominance by the critical use of theory from Marx and Engels, and Freud, while Millett, in Sexual Politics , examines male dominance by a process of questioning male-female sexual relations in literature written by men. As will be recalled, I take a different approach: This, she suggests, will be done by using technology to free women from child-bearing and by the development of alternatives including homosexual relationships among both sexes to the nuclear family with its existing oppressive gender roles. By interpreting differences between men and women in this way, Firestone ends up with a biologically determinist analysis. In particular, the idea of romance plays an important part in the social construction of women as sexual objects to be used by men rather than as subjects in their own right In this way she begins to examine the role of sexuality in the oppression of women by men, an issue which feminists have focused on to a much greater extent since The Dialectic of Sex. Feminists have encountered this important issue in a number of ways. But using a much more distinctly social approach, where male control over women is seen as the outcome of social constructions regarding motherhood, other feminists have criticised rather than applauded such developments. In short, some feminists fear that women will be seen as redundant once they are no longer needed for what is, in the present male-dominated context, their only really important function Arditti et al. Ultimately, for Freud, the male child wishes to sexually possess his mother in the way he sees his father doing, in order to join the ranks of adult men. As a result he also wishes to kill his father who is in this role already, leading to fear on behalf of the child that the father will castrate him in attempting to repress this wish. This preference does not continue into adulthood because at that point 40 Lewd women and wicked witches the male is himself able to be in a position of power. As Firestone further explains: What finally convinces him is the offer of the world when he grows up. He is asked to make a transition from the state of potentially powerful, son ego extension of his father. Firestone concludes, therefore, that the power hierarchies which exist within the patriarchal nuclear family are maintained by sexual repression. Importantly, she also shows that both male and female sexuality is acted out in a powered context, and is a crucial element of the unequal male-female social relations in our society. She also uses both social and seemingly biologistic interpretations of Freud without clarifying her stance. Not only does this merely relate to culturally and historically specific types of the family and what about single-parent families where the father is absent? Women are not merely dominated by their fathers, but by men generally. Firestone also applies her reinterpretation of Freud to the issue of racism. Power relations between men and women provide the context in which physiological differences of race also become important Following on from this link between racism and sexism, Firestone argues that race relations in America are a reflection of the unequal relationships within the nuclear family such that: This power hierarchy creates the psychology of racism, just as, in the nuclear family, it creates the psychology of sexism. The white woman might, because of her husband, have power over both black men and women. The black man meanwhile has power over the black woman. The black man as a result has three choices: Such an attempt could, but will not necessarily, encompass a wish to become the Father. In this instance the black woman is the Daughter of the white American family. Initially she, like the Son the black man sympathises with the Mother white woman against the Father white man. In rejecting the womanly element in herself, she also develops contempt for the Mother. The black woman, as the Daughter, is faced with two options regarding her powerlessness: Thus black men attempted to carry out option 3 , of the options outlined earlier, whereby the creation of the powerful and masculine black man was concomitant to the creation of the passive black woman. Meanwhile white women and black women were divided against each other, unable to see that they were actually in the same boat. But Firestone and other early radical feminists, such as the Redstockings, were clearly influenced by the black struggles in America during the s. More recently, issues regarding race and ethnicity have also been discussed from this approach. This latter perspective is also the one presented by Firestone. In fact in recent years various women have written about race and ethnicity using radical feminist approaches. These are issues which have taken an increasingly prominent position in more recent feminist literature Dworkin ; Hanmer ; Hanmer and Saunders ; MacKinnon ; Coveney et al. For Millett, men are the group who have power over women by virtue of their birthright as male, a situation that is virtually unique in comparison to other inequalities such as economic class and race, and also extremely durable. This is important because, while male dominance might appear to rest on the physical strength of the male, it actually rests on a particular value system: As Millett explains: Superior physical strength is not a factor in political relations— vide those of race and class. Civilisation has always been able to substitute other methods technic, weaponry, knowledge for those of physical strength, and contemporary civilisation has no further need of it. At present, as in the past, physical exertion is very generally a class factor, those at the bottom performing the most strenuous tasks, whether they be strong or not Millett Following on from these categories are the corresponding sex roles which place women in the domestic setting tied to her biological experience. This is an important notion which has resurfaced in recent feminist literature, including that of revolutionary feminists see Johnston ; Barry ; Leeds Revolutionary Feminist Group The idea of interior colonisation also links to a related aspect of male sexuality—the idea of the penis as a weapon. But in rape that is precisely what men are doing. Millett This is because only 46 Lewd women and wicked witches heterosexual sexuality is constructed as specifically unequal. Indeed the warrior caste of mind with its ultravirility, is more incipiently homosexual, in its exclusively male orientation, than it is overtly homosexual. The Nazi experience is an extreme case in point here. This is an issue which later feminist writings have also taken up Coveney et al. As mentioned earlier, Millett argues that male supremacy has to be upheld either through consent or by force. Patriarchal societies typically link feelings of cruelty with sexuality, the latter often equated both with evil and with power. This is apparent both in the sexual fantasy reported by psychoanalysis and that reported by pornography. For Millett the personal is explicitly political. It is interesting to note that, as a result of her analysis, Millett sees the slackening of censorship as an important factor in the increased use of sexual hostility against women ibid.: This issue has more recently become the focus of debate and feminist activity, exemplified by the attempt by Andrea Dworkin and Catharine MacKinnon to use American Civil Rights legislation against pornography see MacKinnon a: Millett also extends her analysis to social relations generally. By reference to both economic class relations and racial divisions she argues that sexual relations are the more fundamental, but also the least obvious. Sexual factors similarly play an intrinsic part in hierarchical relations between men, both in terms of economic class hierarchy and racial hierarchy. The lower the status of a particular male, the greater his assertion of masculinity. Concomittantly, high-status males place less emphasis on masculinity. Millett expresses these complex relations as follows: The function of class or ethnic mores in patriarchy is largely a matter of how overtly displayed or how loudly enunciated the general ethic of masculine supremacy allows itself to become. Here one is confronted by what appears to be a paradox: In addition to the social construction of male and female behaviour, including sexuality, and the use or threat of force, male supremacy according to Millett is also shored up by differential access to education and employment for men and women. This results in a general lack of knowledge by women compared to men, and also in economic dependency by women on men, which is important because knowledge and power are interlinked. Women are placed in a secondary position within paid employment, their social status determining the status of their work see also Phillips and Taylor Her work conveys excitement and creativity, but is also often difficult to read because of her particular use of language. Daly is presenting one of the earlier examples of contemporary feminist work to argue that male violence acts as a means of controlling women socially, and like Millett , she sees sexuality as a crucial aspect of this. Her examination of the European witchburnings constitutes one of the few feminist analyses of the early modern witch-hunts, and I will discuss this aspect of her work later see Chapter 6. It is a self which male-defined social processes have overlain and thus obscured with all manner of behaviours, feelings, and thoughts, which do not belong to this self Barrett ; Segal ; Weedon Daly obviously wants this focus on the female self to be empowering for women, and to suggest that women could be free if male supremacy is eradicated. Unfortunately in this way her perspective ends up with a similar outcome to biological determinism—that there is a natural femaleness which we should aspire to uncover. As Andrea Nye points out, the problem of language in an unequal society is not with individual words, but with the relationship between words. Therefore changing the language might not fundamentally change anything because the new words take on meanings which reflect unequal male-female relations. If the very structure of meaning depends on sexual difference, then a simple expulsion or reinstatement of meanings may not have the desired effect. If the structure of the language demands hierarchialised gender, then no matter what new words are invented or rediscovered, the same assymetrical relations will eventually reconstitute themselves, as other words shift in meaning to accommodate the addition or deletion. Yet Daly is presenting an important approach, arguing also that male violence is used as a crucial means of controlling women socially see Chapter 5. Naturalness is merely a perception. We need to find out what it is that we know and what it is that we experience. Stanley and Wise Even so, social structures must be taken into account, and they argue that such structures are created in everyday interactions: This leaves Stanley and Wise with a problem, however, because it is unclear why particular structures such as those giving overall power to men are created. Using an ethnomethodological approach also allows for change, because it is possible to construct realities which are in contradiction to those of others, and also possible to see these alternative realities precisely as alternatives. As they explain: Reality disjunctures themselves are situations in which participants become fully aware that the very existence of phenomenon claimed by one is denied by the others. What is very important about this, according to Stanley and Wise, is the way ethnomethodology suggests that we are involved in both our own oppression and our own liberation: Individually we can effect many small changes. In Georgie Porgie Wise and Stanley apply this framework to an analysis of male power. Wise and Stanley Although, because the process of control is interactional rather than structural, the potential outcome of any male-female encounter is very unpredictable. Women may use a number of strategies: I will look at each in turn. In retaliation she shot and killed one of them, and as a result was imprisoned for murder, although released later on appeal. In one of the examples they quote, women used lewd remarks and sexual innuendo to empower themselves against a man who had used the same against them. Besides direct physical violence, there does not actually seem to be much difference between this and the previous category. As Wise and Stanley explain: Avoiding sexual harassment—like not going into pubs on your own or not going to particular places at night by yourself—is also often seen as the complete antithesis of fighting back. But, as we are arguing here as well as earlier in our discussion of power, even though avoidance is constraint of a kind, it is also the rational weighing up of pros and cons to enable sensible decisions to be made. I do not deny that women are actively and consistently opposing male power. On the contrary, there is much evidence to suggest that this is the case, and moreover, as Stanley and Wise state: What is important here is the overriding impression of a sex struggle, a conflict between men and women over power. This clearly negates the collective strategy of the earlier radical feminists such as the Redstockings. Dworkin points out how: She is, in fact, hunted meat—all the male auteurs, scientists, and homespun philosophers on street corners will say so proudly.

Lewd Women and Wicked Witches: During the s and s feminists increasingly came to recognize how the eroticization of women's inferiority, and male sexual violence are both central to the maintenance and perpetuation of male power over women. These issues were largely taken up by radical and especially revolutionary feminists. Marianne Hester, in this book, attempts to explain how women's experien During the s and s feminists increasingly came to recognize how the eroticization of women's inferiority, and male sexual violence are both central to the maintenance and perpetuation of male power over women. Marianne Hester, in this book, attempts to explain how women's experience of male sexual violence, through rape and sexual abuse, can lead to an understanding of male power over women. Her analysis also helps us to understand male power in other historical periods. The book focuses on two very separate events and periods: While stressing the socio-historical specificity and distinct characteristics of men's and women's lives within the 20th-century on the one hand and the 16th and 17th centuries on the other, she argues that the witch hunts may be seen as an historically specific example of male violence.

Dworkin points out how: She is, in fact, hunted meat—all the male auteurs, scientists, and homespun philosophers on street corners will say so proudly. Attempting to strike a bargain, the woman says: I come to you on your own terms. Her hope is that his murderous attention will focus on a female who conforms less artfully, less willingly. In effect, she ransoms the remains of a life—what is left over after she has renounced wilful individuality—by promising indifference to the fate of other women. This sexual, sociological, and spiritual adaptation, which is, in fact, the maiming of all moral capacity, is the primary imperative of survival for women who live under malesupremacist rule. Dworkin In the following chapters I will more fully discuss the importance of the issues of sexuality and violence to the construction and perpetuation of male domination over women. Chapter 4 Towards a revolutionary feminist approach Male sexual violence against women1 Throughout the s growing feminist, and also public, awareness about the issue of male violence against women, violence specifically directed at women by men, prompted the need for explanation of this phenomenon. Domestic violence and rape were some of the earliest concerns. Evidence from women made it obvious that these experiences were very widespread Katyachild et al. Socialist and Marxist feminists have been unable to deal with the issue of male violence Segal Their class-based analysis suggests that it is certain socio-economic conditions, such as unemployment, which leads men to be violent against women Wilson But this is much too limited, and does not cover the extensive evidence of violence to women, which suggests instead that women from all classes experience violence from men from any class Russell ; Hanmer and Saunders Tim Carrigan et al. And Andy 58 Towards a revolutionary feminist approach 59 Moye has argued that pornography is probably more damaging to men than it is to women see Chapter 5. Others, including revolutionary feminists, have argued that male violence against women in whatever form—harassment, rape, battering etc. Our everyday behaviour reflects our precautions, the measures we take to protect ourselves. We are wary of going out at night, even in our own neighbourhoods. We are warned by men and other women not to trust strangers. But somehow they forget to warn us about the men we know: Many men familiar to us also terrorise our everyday lives in our homes, our schools, our workplaces. Stanko It is important to realise that the work done by feminists concerning male violence against women has laid the basis for understanding the crucial part played by sexuality particularly the social construction of male sexuality in the oppression of women by men. The issue of male violence against women will therefore be examined in this chapter before I go on to develop the concept of male sexuality as social control of women more fully. I will concentrate on the issues of rape and pornography as these show clearly the nature of male violence against women and the role this plays in the oppression of women. In particular it can be seen that rape is about sex as opposed to merely violence, and pornography exemplifies how sadism and masochism are part and parcel of heterosexual behaviour. Kate Millett briefly outlines the use of rape as force in the context of malefemale power relations. Feminists have shown that rape is widely experienced by women. Diana Russell , for instance, in a survey of women in the United States, found that 44 per cent had experienced one or more attempted or actual rapes during their lives, and that 1 in 7 women had been raped by their husbands. On the contrary, they are no different from other men: It is difficult to believe that such widespread violence is the responsibility of a small lunatic fringe of psychopathic men. Allen Griswold Johnson in Stanko Feminists Towards a revolutionary feminist approach 61 generally agree that rape involves social control of women by men, but some argue that rape is violence Brownmiller , while others argue that rape is to do with sexuality MacKinnon , c; Jeffreys In agreement with the latter, I will argue here that rape is to do with the construct of male sexuality because, in the contemporary male supremacist context, male sexuality is about male power. The way rape is dealt with in legal terms and also practically by the state illustrates some of the conceptual problems involved in the development of a feminist analysis of rape. The law defines rape as forced or unwanted sexual intercourse from a man to a woman. In other words, rape is seen as non-consensual sex between a man and a woman Sexual Offences Act Brownmiller outlines this experience: Sexual assault in our day and age is hardly restricted to forced genital copulation,…but the invasion may occur through the mouth and rectum as well. Brownmiller In practice, the legal apparatus also takes acts other than penile penetration into account, but in a contradictory manner. The law states that rape is specifically sexual intercourse or penile penetration of a woman where the woman does not consent. But in practice it is virtually impossible for a woman to prove that she has been raped without additional physical evidence, such as extensive evidence of violence bruising, cuts, etc. London Rape Crisis Centre ; Stanko This is also part of the reason why, even though rape is apparently condemned in our society, in practice rapists are seldom convicted. Violence and sex are both important notions in understanding rape, but not in the way suggested by the law, although the law and state practice provide important pointers to an explanation of rape. I want to argue that rape is actually an act of sexual violence that can only exist in a context where sexuality generally is constructed as, and acted out as, a power relation, that is as dominance and submission. In terms of the law on rape an even greater problem is the notion of consent. Some feminists, such as Brownmiller, argue that women may consent to heterosexual intercourse, while recognising that there is also a general expectation that women should have, or should submit to, intercourse within a male-dominant context. This expectation has, for example, been instituted in marriage, which is why the rape legislation has historically exempted the marriage relationship. This has only recently, as a result of feminist pressure, begun to be changed L. Kelly Brownmiller defines rape as primarily heterosexual intercourse where the woman concerned has not agreed to, or chosen, the act: A female definition of rape can be contained in a single sentence. If a woman chooses not to have intercourse with a specific man and the man chooses to proceed against her will, that is a criminal act of rape. The implication is that there is an acceptable normal heterosexuality as well as an unacceptable abnormal heterosexuality. This unfortunately bears a resemblance to the legal definition of rape. Her examples emphasise this notion of rape as violence. She looks at rape in war, in riots and revolutions, in the context of racism, in prison, and as sexual abuse of children. These are all presented as common, but extreme and extraordinary events. None the less, her documentation of rape presents some interesting points regarding rape and power, as well as criticising some of the myths about rape. Secondly, she suggests that it is in situations of extreme power discrepancy between men and women that rape takes place. As a result she presents the rapist as prevalent in only particular socio-economic and racial groups: This conclusion is both classist and racist but also sits uneasily with her emphasis on all men keeping all women in a state of fear. These points begin to expose the problems related to an analysis where rape is seen as violence. Of course, it must be recognised that the notion of rape as violence has had an important part to play in the development of a feminist analysis of rape. Women who have been raped experience this as a violent act, rather than an act of sex which may be defined in other, more pleasant emotional terms. There is no doubt that for women, rape is a violently traumatic act. In saying this it may appear that I am beginning to contradict myself. But it does not necessarily tell us why men rape. By reference to some of this material, I want to consider why rape should be seen as sex rather than merely as violence. It was suggested earlier that the legal definition and state practice concerning rape presents rape as sex, but requires evidence of violence in order to acknowledge that rape has taken place. This is because rape is seen as an abnormal sex act between a man and a woman. As MacKinnon succinctly explains: I propose that the state is male in the feminist sense. The law sees and treats women the way men see and treat women. The liberal state coercively and authoritatively constitutes the social order in the interests of men as a gender, through its legitimizing morals, relation to society, and substantive policies. MacKinnon a: It is a male-female scenario leading, for the man, to an obvious and acceptable situation which includes sex: He asks her to dance. She accepts. He asks her out, she accepts. He kisses her. He puts his hand on her leg, her breast, her cunt He wants to see how far he can go. He asks her to sleep with him. Or she refuses. He tries to persuade her. He tells her he loves 66 Lewd women and wicked witches her. He calls her a prude, immature, frigid. Each time they meet he carries on a bit further, a bit further. Why not go all the way? He buys durex to demonstrate his sense of responsibility. He teaches her to suck him off. He works towards his goal, which is her vagina. He means to have, to possess this woman. London Rape Action Group The scenario illustrates the way the different experiences of men and women are constructed through interactions within the unequal power context of male-female relations in a male supremacist society. What women experience as violence, then in accordance with the dominant male definition and construction of the term , is actually normal heterosexual sex: Rape is therefore sexual violence. That is also why women who have experienced rape may find it difficult to separate their experience of heterosexual sex generally from that of rape. As MacKinnon explains: Towards a revolutionary feminist approach 67 A common experience of rape victims is to be unable to feel good about anything heterosexual thereafter—or anything sexual at all, or men at all…That, to me, is sexual. When a woman has been raped, and it is sex that she cannot then experience, without connecting it to that, it was her sexuality that was violated. MacKinnon, a: The judges would consider the example given earlier of malefemale relations from the London Rape Action Group as a consensual situation, that is, in their terms, not rape but sex. These women know that the state is unlikely to prosecute in most instances of women-defined or women-perceived rape: Maybe they were forced-fucked for years and put up with it, maybe they tried to get it over with, maybe they were coerced by something other than battery, something like economics, maybe even something like love. For MacKinnon it is this eroticisation of dominance which lies at the core of male supremacy, reconstructing and thereby maintaining and perpetuating the male supremacist social order. In this way 68 Lewd women and wicked witches sexuality is not only central to the existence of male supremacy, but rape is an instance of sexual violence. Sexuality is that social process which creates, organizes, expresses, and directs desire, creating the social beings we know as women and men, as their relations create society. MacKinnon In short, rape, as an integral part of heterosexual relations, may also be seen as integral to the dynamics of male domination. The effect of rape is to control women socially, and it is men who benefit. This issue has led to much debate regarding whether or not pornography leads to or even increases rape of women by men. Centuries of civilization and ten minutes of common sense tell us otherwise. Katyachild et al. Recent research also backs up this view Everywoman In public hearings on pornography were held in Minneapolis for a Bill, championed by Catharine MacKinnon and Andrea Dworkin, which would define pornography as a violation of the Civil Rights of Women. At the hearings women and men told of how pornography is used by men both as a direct turn-on and also to provide them with ideas for doing violence to women, to children and sometimes to other men. One woman told how she and other women working as prostitutes were constantly expected to act out scenes from pornograpic magazines or films. Another woman told of facing racist abuse as part of sexual abuse. Yet another how her boyfriend who later became her husband expected her to act out degrading and humiliating, as well as dangerous, poses from pornographic magazines for him to photograph: When we got there he asked me, he told me to take off my clothes and to pose in various positions where I acted as if I was running towards the door. And then he asked me to put my body in contorted different positions, draped down the stairs of the bus, and they were quite jagged, and at that moment I realized that we were depicting a murder. I became very terrified and scared and was really cold…. Everywoman Analysing pornography has helped us understand the social construction of male and female behaviour within a male supremacist context, and particularly the notions of objectification and fetishisation as applied to women. Analysing pornography has also led feminists to further examine the link between brutality and sexual pleasure in the construction of heterosexuality which Millett also outlined. The lobby against censorship argues that extending censorship to pornography would more easily allow the state to increase censorship in other areas, and that instead we should be arguing for a general freedom with regard to publication see Burstyn But this argument is peculiarly liberal, not radical as it purports to be. Lack of censorship against pornography is therefore highly unlikely to lead to lack of censorship against other areas of publication. Instead, it is the publication of oppressive material, such as pornography, which is likely to increase. The focus on censorship as the major issue in the debate about pornography is, in any case, a red herring which merely obscures the real issue, that is, male power.
