- 10+ in stock
Rebecca Solnit's essay 'Men Explain Things to Me' has become a touchstone of the feminist movement. It inspired the term 'mansplaining', and established Solnit as one of the leading feminist thinkers of our time - one who has inspired everyone from radical activists to Beyonce Knowles.
Collected here in print for the first time is the essay itself, along with the best of Solnit's feminist writings.From rape culture to mansplaining, from French sex scandals to marriage and the nuclear family, from Virginia Woolf to colonialism, 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 in the most exquisite and inviting of prose, Rebecca Solnit proves herself a vital leading figure of the feminist movement and a radical, humane thinker.
With a bibliography including writing on ‘feminism, western and indigenous history, popular power, social change and insurrection, wandering and walking, hope and disaster', Rebecca Solnit is a significant and increasingly influential contemporary voice. A writer and historian, her books include: Hope in the Dark, Men Explain Things to Me, The Faraway Nearby, A Field Guide to Getting Lost, Wanderlust: A History of Walking and The Mother of All Questions.
