Profile of Mary Daly
Her other books include Beyond God the Father (1973), Gyn/Ecology (1978), Pure Lust (1984), the autobiographical Outercourse (1992), Quintessence (1998) and Amazon Grace (2006)… Daly challenged patriachy through words themselves. “Dalyisms” such as “gynergy” and “phallocracy,” and her uses of capitals and hyphens, as in “Stag-nation,” are explained in Wickedary (1987), a “meta-dictionary” of her philosophy… Her fight with BC was litigious at the end, with the college claiming she had agreed to retire and Daly implying she was being forced out.
