Following on from the success of Men Explain Things to Me comes a new collection of essays in which Rebecca Solnit opens up a feminism for all of us: one that doesn't stigmatise women's lives, whether they include spouses and children or not; that brings empathy to the silences in men's lives as well as the silencing of women's lives; celebrates the ways feminism has shifted in recent years to reclaim rape jokes, revise canons, and rethink our everyday lives.

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 MeThe Faraway NearbyA Field Guide to Getting LostWanderlust: A History of Walking and The Mother of All Questions.
