Mary Daly (1928–2010) was a world-renowned radical feminist philosopher who held doctorates in theology and philosophy from the University of Fribourg in Switzerland. Her groundbreaking books include Church and Second Sex, Beyond God the Father, Gyn/Ecology, Pure Lust, Websters' First New Intergalatic Wickedary of the English Languague (Conjured in Cahoots with Jane Caputi), and Outercourse.Review:
"Mary Daly is the first modern feminist philosopher. She has written a brave, visionary, unforgettable book. I wish every woman would read it so that the bright prism of this sister's mind could shimmer for them, as it did, in this volume, for me." – Robin Morgan
"I believe Mary Daly has struck the main nerve of the woman's movement ... There is a crying need of women for identification with any sort of embodiment of the First Cause, The Female Principle and Daly's book, Beyond God the Father, will be a landmark in that great event which she so perceptively categorizes as the 'second coming – of women'" – Elizabeth Gould Davis, author of The First Sex
