Reenvisioning radical feminist Andrea Dworkin

Radical feminist Andrea Dworkin was a powerful voice in feminism in the 80s and 90s, willing to go on talk shows like The Donahue Show and articulate her ideas about women, men, pornography, and violence. In American culture, she became emblematic of “the angry feminist” stereotype. The new film, My Name is Andrea, revisits Dworkin’s life and writing and argues for a more expansive view of her work. In this conversation, host Suki Wessling speaks with film director Pratibha Parmar and local activist Ann Simonton about Dworkin and her affect on our culture. Simonton, who was a friend of Dworkin’s and serves on the Santa Cruz Committee for the Prevention of Violence Against Women, helped to bring the film to Santa Cruz. Parmar will attend the screening and speak about the film.
