ABSTRACT
The article reflects on the state of the feminist movement in the U.S. as of 1980. It explores the activism of the feminist movement which is both political and sub-visceral. It criticizes the feminist notion that equality is self-sovereignty that begins most fundamentally with one's own body. It also comments on the feminist stance on the link between pornography and violence.
