University of Texas professor Robert Jensen will speak on “The Politics of Patriarchy and the Corrosive Culture of Male Dominance,” analyzing the long history of institutionalized male dominance in U.S. politics and culture.
In his new book, The End of Patriarchy: Radical Feminism for Men, Jensen asks one key question: What do we need to create and maintain stable, decent human communities that can remain in a sustainable relationship with the larger living world? His answer: A radical feminism that critiques institutionalized male dominance, rejects men’s assertion of a right to control women’s sexuality and reproduction, and demands an end to men’s violence.
Jensen, who teaches in the School of Journalism, is the author of several other books, including Plain Radical: Living, Loving, and Learning to Leave the Planet Gracefully.
