An ancient title of respect for women, the word "cunt" long ago veered off this noble path. Inga Muscio traces the road from honor to expletive, giving women the motivation and tools to claim "cunt" as a positive and powerful force in their lives.
In this fully revised edition, she explores, with candidness and humor, such traditional feminist issues as birth control, sexuality, jealousy between women, and prostitution with a fresh attitude for a new generation of women. Sending out a call for every woman to be the Cuntlovin' Ruler of Her Sexual Universe, Muscio stands convention on its head by embracing all things cunt-related. This edition is fully revised with updated resources, a new foreword from sexual pioneer Betty Dodson, and a new afterword by the author.
About the Author
Inga Muscio (born c. 1966), is an American feminist, anti-racist writer and public speaker.
She became famous after the publication of her 1998 Seal Press book Cunt: A Declaration of Independence, which called for women to break down boundaries between themselves and their bodies, and each other.
She is also the author of the book Autobiography of a Blue-Eyed Devil: My Life and Times in a Racist Imperialist Society, (published by Seal Press in 2005) which examines and critiques white privilege, racism, colonialism among other issues.
Her third book, Rose: Love in Violent Times (Seven Stories Press) was released in November, 2010. It examines the presence of passive and physical violence in our daily lives and describes how we might find love within this violence.
