Mr B's review

Once more, Rebecca Solnit manages to transform complicated reality into beautiful, accessible and empowering writing. This is a book for readers who become angry when we see inequality manifest, and jump for joy when we witness changes for the better. Whether astounded at the questions women are asked (and men aren’t), exploring the politics of silence, or celebrating feminism across the world, Solnit is a hugely intelligent and caring presence, and this book is an essential one this year.

Description

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 stigmatize 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.
