Mary Daly, Radical Feminist Philosopher, dead at 81

category international | rights, freedoms and repression | news report author Friday January 08, 2010 22:32author by anarkitty Report this post to the editors

She influenced Feminist thought through decades

On 3rd January 2010, Mary Daly moved once and for all beyond the "imprisoning mental, physical, emotional and spiritual walls of the State of Possession" as she described consensual reality in the bio at the beginning of "Quintessence... Realizing the Archaic Future a Radical Elemental Feminist Manifesto" (her penultimate book)

Daly also described herself as a "Positively Revolting Hag, repelling the forces of patriarchy; and a Crafty Pirate, Righteously Plundering the treasures of knowledge that have been stolen and hidden from women and struggling to Smuggle these back in such a way that they can be seen as distinct from their mind-binding trappings."

She held three doctorates, including doctorates in theology and philosophy from the University of Fribourg, Switzerland. She is the author of "Beyond God the Father: Towards a Philosophy of Women's Liberation"; " Gyn/Ecology: The Metaethics of Radical Feminism"; Pure Lust: Elemental Feminist Philosophy"; "Websters' First New Intergalactic Wickedary of the English Language (Conjured in cahoots with Jane Caputi)"; "Outercourse: The Bedazzling Voyage"; "Amazon Grace: Re-Calling the Courage to Sin Big"; and "The Church and the Second Sex".

it seems like it would be inappropriate to wish for mary daly to rest in peace... but i do hope that she is reunited with her boon companions and foresisters right now and that they are all cackling up a storm together :)
