Where does Free Women, Free Men rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
It's completely different than my usual purchase and I was a little worried it might be static theory but listening to this is like listening to her fantastically electric lectures. She really is a fabulous wordsmith. The sentences are epic, and always with a sense of humour. More than anything I love when she ruminates on art. Her scope is enormous. No one like her. I had a blast listening.

Not everyone is going to like Paglia and if you do decide you like her then most likely you are not going to agree with her on all topics. However she is a very important voice in Feminism today. There is a reason why most young women don't want to identify as feminist. To leave Feminism uncriticized is to not do feminists any favors. We need open minded, intelligent, thought provoking voices, ideally from women offering alternative points of view. I appreciate her ideas of "equal opportunity feminist", a feminism that works for men and women for the improvement of general society. I appreciate her being pro-male and giving men their due in society.
Where I think she falls down in this book is her over use of high academic terms that people like myself have no foundation of reference. Her over use of Apollonian, Rousseau, and in my mind obscure Hollywood references. For me it takes away from her message.
