Ep. 69: Behind the Scenes of Feminism’s Destructive Legacy:
Mallory Millett

Feminist icon Kate Millett passed away three years ago at the age of 82. Her 1970 book, Sexual Politics was called “the Bible of Women’s Liberation” by The New York Times and had a seismic effect on feminist thought. It launched Millett as what the Times called “a defining architect of second-wave feminism.” In a cover story that same year, TIME magazine crowned her “the Mao Tse-tung of Women’s Liberation.”

But Kate’s sister Mallory is the polar opposite of her sister. In a riveting article entitled, “Marxist Feminism’s Ruined Lives,” Mallory revealed what she saw of the subversive undercurrent of her sister’s passionate radicalism.

An unrepentant conservative, Mallory has been very vocal about her early experiences with the feminist movement and her subsequent defection. She’s a former actress who resides in New York City with her husband of over twenty years.
