Robin Morgan, The Anatomy of Freedom (Random House) 1982

Morgan developed in the first set of chapters the concept of men versus the social construct Man, of women versus the social construct Woman. Morgan emphasizes that, whereas men believe the myths of Man, women know and have always known, with an amused contempt, that they were not Woman; that women in patriarchy quietly tolerate ludicrous dogma that they do not accept. Because the world is run by men, the official thinking of society enshrines an orthodoxy which women, as a distinct philosophical underground, secretly and irreverently laugh at.
