Feminist writer Andrea Dworkin talks about her latest novel, Mercy, with Josy Catoggio of KPFK's Feminist Magazine. Dworkin talks about the parts of the book that are autobiographical, including her experiences in a house of detention where she was sent for anti-war demonstrations. Dworkin says she was raped in prison by doctors and that this rendered her mute. She also discusses her insistence that pornography be outlawed as it has a direct link to violence against women.
