The End of Patriarchy asks one key question: what do we need to create stable and decent human communities that can thrive in a sustainable relationship with the larger living world? Robert Jensen's answer is feminism and a critique of patriarchy. He calls for a radical feminist challenge to institutionalized male dominance; an uncompromising rejection of men's assertion of a right to control women's sexuality; and a demand for an end to the violence and coercion that are at the heart of all systems of domination and subordination. The End of Patriarchy makes a powerful argument that a socially just society requires no less than a radical feminist overhaul of the dominant patriarchal structures.

In The Press
"The End of Patriarchy is a must-read book for men — and women — who know in their gut that men's economic, social and political dominance does terrible harm to women and men, but who lack the cogent arguments or words to express how. With his trademark style that manages to convey both heartfelt humility and breathtaking moral clarity, Robert Jensen expresses the fear that so many men have of engaging deeply with feminist ideas — as well as the incalculable rewards for those willing to take the leap." —Jackson Katz, PhD, author of The Macho Paradox: Why Some Men Hurt Women
