Metapatriarchy: Mary Daly Re-viewed (A Response to Susan Henking)
Abstract

In response to Henking's (1993) synopsis of Mary Daly's works, this article re-views the work in the context of the biography provided in Daly's most recent book. Some aspects of Daly's material are better understood in the context of contemporary feminist authors. The influence Daly had on the evangelical feminist movement is also explored. Although her first book was received with appreciation, Daly's ridicule of her Christian faith in her later works resulted in evangelical readers backing away. Her insistence upon revising language (Re-Naming) limited her communication with people not allied with her view. However, though she may not have planted the seeds of feminism, Daly eventually watered them with her anger.
