“Sexual liberalism has clearly not opened the doors to nirvana.” This is how American journalist, activist and essayist Ellen Willis expresses one of her main disappointments, without laying down her arms. Drawing on her own intimate experience and clarifying her positions within radical feminism, Willis proposes to think of sexual liberation alongside a critique of male domination. Since the emergence of this feminism in the late 1960s, and throughout its turbulent history, she has constantly questioned its principles, methods and issues. For her, the idea of a feminist sexual revolution remains essential: her essays invite us to see sexuality as a terrain of struggle and emancipation, while refusing to subscribe to a policing, moralistic or politically correct approach to sex. The questions at the heart of her work are still our own: why are we still not sexually free, and how can we fight to get there?
