Religion, Reason, Reality: Reinterpreted, Reviled, Repudiated (A Response to Susan Henking's Analysis of Mary Daly's Thought)
Abstract

In contrast to Henking's (1993) evaluation of Mary Daly's books, this response posits that Mary Daly is only a minor figure largely ignored by the active feminist movement. Although the case Daly made in her early book is still being made by others, this is because she echoed many contemporary sources rather than providing original conceptualization. Eventually, she interprets everything through the view of a paranoid conviction that reality is out to get her. Thus Daly's works do not contribute much beyond a cautionary lesson for other feminists.
