Men Explain Things To Me by Rebecca Solnit

Men Explain Things To Me by Rebecca Solnit

In her iconic essay 'Men Explain Things to Me' Rebecca Solnit investigates the conversations of men who wrongly assume they know things and wrongly assume women don't.

This famous and influential essay is included here along with the best of Solnit's feminist writing. From rape culture to grandmothers, from French sex scandals to marriage and the nuclear family, and from Virgina Woolf to colonialsm, these essays are a fierce and incisive exploration of the issues that a patriarchal culture will not necessarily acknowledge as 'issues' at all.

With grace and energy, and the most exquisite and inviting prose, Rebecca Solnit proves herself a vital leading figure of the feminist movement and a radical, generous thinker.
