Andrea Dworkin (1946-2005)
Feminist scholar Andrea Dworkin died last night at the age of 59.
Sheezlebub has an obituary.
Trish Wilson reacts:
I just received word in e-mail that Andrea Dworkin has died in her sleep. I was never a fan of Dworkin's, but I know from reading a couple of her books that her comments about rape and marriage have been taken out of context. I really don't have much more to say about this than to let my readers know she has died. I figured that was newsworthy enough.
Indeed. I have about as much regard for Dworkin's work as I do for the philosophical writings of the late pope. However, it is unthinkable to me that the death of a major feminist thinker should receive so little attention.
As of this posting, Google News shows no obituaries or notices of her death.
Update: I second Creep and Blink's take on Dworkin's legacy.
