SCUM Manifesto: The Argument for a "Male Misogyny"
AbstractBy examining Valerie Solanas’s use of visual imagery, an abrasive ethos, and the ironic deployment of the symbolic SCUM (the Society for Cutting Up Men) in her 1960s’ SCUM Manifesto, this essay seeks to provide an understanding of an important radical feminist text of the women’s rights era.
