Clementine Ford’s Fight Like A Girl explores the ways in which girls and women are held back by the patriarchy, and demands that the world do better. She calls on women to rediscover their suppressed fury. Meanwhile, Robert Jensen’s The End of Patriarchy calls for a radical feminist overhaul of the dominant patriarchal structures, to create a socially just world. Clementine and Robert talk to Catherine Fox about the state of patriarchy today, and why the future is female.
