Men Explain Things to Me

by Rebecca Solnit Author

In her comic, scathingly honest essay, Rebecca Solnit took on what often goes wrong in conversations between men and women. Throughout, Solnit explores the reasons men so often believe they are more educated than the women around them, why women are made to feel the same, how it all manifests, and the ultimate problem at hand: the silencing of women who have something to say, including those saying things like, “He’s trying to kill me!” This book features that now-classic essay with six perfect complements, including an examination of the great feminist writer Virginia Woolf ’s embrace of mystery, of not knowing, of doubt and ambiguity, as well as a highly original inquiry into marriage equality and a terrifying survey of the scope of contemporary violence against women.
