Women as Revolutionary Agents of Change 

By

(Bloomsbury 448pp £14.99) order from our bookshop

Shere Hite is a woman with a mission. Her calling – her ministry – is sex and sexual mores. She wants to convert us all to her own views on these matters, and she has published three books which are meant to persuade us that our sexual habits are in urgent need of revision. The fullest force of her missionary zeal is aimed against the missionary position, but her crusade includes all variations of sexual intercourse, even women on top. We just shouldn’t be doing it.
