Abstract (summary)
This paper explores the "outlaw text" status of SCUM Manifesto, written in 1967 by Valerie Solanas, through its lack of impact upon the culture in the time it was published and now. Solanas and her manifesto have largely been left behind in the turbulent wake of second-wave feminism. This paper, written for one of the inaugural classes of Gender Studies 219, argues for increased visibility and analysis of the manifesto in feminism, academia, and popular culture.
