Esther Vilar

Esther Vilar (nacida Esther Margareta Katzen , 16 de septiembre de 1935 en Buenos


Aires , Argentina ) es una escritora argentino- alemana . Ella entrenó y practicó como
médico antes de establecerse como autora. Es mejor conocida por su libro The Manipulated
Man de 1971 y sus diversos seguimientos, que sostienen que, contrariamente a la retórica
feminista y de los derechos de las mujeres, las mujeres en las culturas industrializadas no
están oprimidas, sino que explotan un sistema bien establecido de hombres manipuladores .

Todavía siente que sus puntos de vista sobre los temas de género están subrepresentados en
la cultura popular, pero lo ha dejado ir, prefiriendo no repetirse y enfocando sus esfuerzos
de no ficción en el no menos controvertido tema de la religión. El tema subyacente en todos
sus escritos es libertad versus encarcelamiento. Específicamente, el deseo en todos nosotros
de delegar responsabilidades personales.

El hombre manipulado (1971)


One of Vilar's most popular books is titled The Manipulated Man, which she called part of a study on "man's delight in nonfreedom".[3]
In it, she claims that women are not oppressed by men, but rather control men in a relationship that is to their advantage but which
most men are not aware of.
Some of the strategies described in her book are:

Luring men with sex, which she referred to as the "periodic use of a woman's vagina," and other seduction strategies
Controlling men by the judicious use of praise, sex, and emotional blackmail once they have been lured
Masking her real intentions and motives in the guise of romantic love
The Manipulated Man was quite popular at the time of its release, in part due to the considerable press coverage it received.[4]

Vilar appeared on The Tonight Show on February 21, 1973, to discuss the book. In 1975 she was invited to a televised debate[5] by WDR
with Alice Schwarzer, who became known as the representative of the women's movement at that time. The debate was controversial,
with Schwarzer claiming Vilar was:[6] "Not only sexist, but fascist", comparing her book with the Nazi newspaper Der Stürmer,[7] and
Vilar opining that it can't be that hard work for a woman to "spread her legs for her husband once or twice a week."[8]

According to the author, she received death threats over the book:

So I hadn't imagined broadly enough the isolation I would find myself in after writing this book. Nor had I envisaged
the consequences which it would have for subsequent writing and even for my private life - violent threats have not
ceased to this date.[9]
