Valerie Solanas: The Defiant Life of the Woman Who Wrote SCUM (and Shot Andy Warhol)

by Breanne Fahs and Valerie Solanas

Valerie Solanas may have been dismissed but will never be forgotten. She has become, perhaps unwittingly, a figurehead for women's unexpressed rage and stands at the center of many cultural worlds. She inhabited Andy Warhol's Factory scene, circulated among feminists and the counter-cultural underground, charged men money for her conversation, despised "daddy's girls," and created a vision for radical gender dystopia.
