About this item

Praise for Men Explain Things to Me:"It's a fraught time to be female in America (or should I say fraught-er) , and Rebecca Solnit's Men Explain Things to Me is the most clarifying, soothing, and socially aware document I've read on the topic this year." - Lena Dunham, Wall Street Journal"The Antidote to Mansplaining." - The Stranger"Feminist, frequently funny, unflinchingly honest, and often scathing in its conclusions." - SalonIn a timely and incisive follow-up to her national bestseller Men Explain Things to Me, Rebecca Solnit offers sharp commentary on women who refuse to be silenced, misogynistic violence, the fragile masculinity of the literary canon, the gender binary, the recent history of rape jokes, and much more.

She encourages you to shop at Indiebound, your local independent bookstore, Powells.com, Barnes & Noble online and kind of has some large problems with how Amazon operates these days. Though she's grateful if you're buying her books here or anywhere....
