Female Face in the Patriarchy, The
The Female Face in Patriarchy discusses women's complicity in
patriarchal dominance and their role in fostering their own
oppression. This work, the result of a two-year study by Frances
O'Connor and Becky Drury focusing on Brazil and the United States,
examines how and why women are participants and promoters of their
own oppression in the Roman Catholic Church. Using the Church as a
model for society in general, The Female Face in Patriarchy
demonstrates how women, through centuries of conditioning, have
become both victims and perpetrators of their own oppression and how
their cooperation with, and submission to, patriarchal dominance has
been both conscious and unconscious.
