Men Explain Things To Me: And Other Essays by Rebecca Solnit

Men Explain Things To Me (2014) is a collection of essays that examine the range of misogyny in our culture, from everyday microaggressions to legal systems that fail to punish rape. Solnit explains how sexism perpetuates itself, and what we can all do to eliminate it.

These blinks were interesting to me as someone who grew up being taught that everything was equal between men and women, then found herself experiencing a world that told a different story. These blinks represent an informative brief covering subtle sexism and sexual and physical abuse against women.”
