Note: The impact of Plato on feminist theory cannot be overstated. Some will claim that feminists in no way, shape, or form, endorse Plato, nor subscribe to his totalitarian vision.

The intense scrutiny of his works by both feminists and leftists (who in reality, are one in the same) speaks volumes.

The following are additional titles that serious students can read on their own. I will not be including these works into my writings for the sake of brevity - Kumogakure.
