150 Years of Gynarchy: with essays by Natalia Stroika and Pearl O'Leslie
Voltairine, Viola and Stroika, Natalia and O'Leslie, Pearl


This book is for men who worship women. It's for women who think feminism doesn't go far enough. It's for people of all genders who are fed up with male dominance. The opposite of patriarchy is Gynarchy, but it's not just a simple flip of the script. The Gynarchist must not emulate the same mistakes, or perpetuate the oppressive power dynamics prevalent for thousands of years.

150 Years of Gynarchy offers a theoretical background and a simple set of ideas and dynamics for bringing about the downfall of male dominance and ending the brutalization of women. Liberation begins at home. This includes using sex and sexuality to shift the collective psyche. 150 Years of Gynarchy will deprogram misogyny, heal wounds, balance the scales of history, and lead to a real and lasting equality.

"This is a spectacularly well-written (manifesto? Can I use that word?) book, that offers a beautifully complete and compelling view of a potential world of the future, with a realistic approach to making change in the here-and-now. For the male submissive, this is required reading. For Female Dominants, well, you probably already know all of this information, but I recommend it all the same. If you want to show your support, then it's required buying, at the very least. Then make it required reading for one of the men in your life. They will be grateful!" - AVA PAULSON, AMAZON.COM BOOK REVIEW
