Valerie Solanas

SCUM Manifesto

Valerie Solanas' SCUM Manifesto was first published in 1986 after she had shot and nearly killed Andy Warhol. The text used here is the very slightly altered version issued later.

In 1967, Valerie Solanas wrote and self-published the SCUM Manifesto, which called for male gendercide and the creation of a superior, all-female society. Her manifesto declared:

"Life in a society being, at best, an utter bore and no aspect of society being at all relevant to women, there remains to civic-minded, responsible, thrill-seeking females only to overthrow the government, eliminate the money system, institute complete automation and destroy the male sex."
