  Andrea Dworkin 12 April 2005  
Leading feminist Andrea, who died on Saturday was well known for her extreme and dynamic views

A major critic of misogyny, she blamed our patriarchal modern world for perpetuating the domination and even hatred of women.

A controversial figure, she was represented by critics as the personification of the 'dungaree branch' of feminism and often divided fellow campaigners with her strong views on society. 

Jenni talks to journalist Julie Bindel about Dworkin’s life and legacy.
