From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Marilyn French (1929-) American author, known for her feminist novels. In her work, French has underlined that women's suppression is an intrinsic part of the male-dominated global culture. French's 1985 "history" of patriarchy, Beyond Power: On Women, Men and Morals, is an impeccably documented examination of the effect of patriarchy on the world; French defines patriarchy as a system of values that holds power and control most important, and rejects life and pleasure as equally -- or MORE -- valuable.
