SCUM Manifesto was considered one of the most outrageous, violent and certifiably crazy tracts. Valerie Solanas, the woman who shot Andy Warhol, self-published this work just before her rampage against the king of Pop Art made her a household name and resulted in her confinement to a mental institution. As outrageous as this text may seem, Solanas is more complex and far more intelligent than the “lesbian lunatic” she is often labled. Not only is she clearly ahead of her times in treating themes like artificial insemination and church and state, Solanas is almost prophetic in her approach to domestic abuse, economic class and social equality. This brief text is a stunning testament of a damaged and abused woman frustrated by her social milieu.
