Rebecca Solnit's essay 'Men Explain Things to Me' has become a
touchstone of the feminist movement, 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.
