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.

The lady narrating sounds like she should be narrating an episode of desperate housewives. I tried a few times to listen but couldn’t get past her voice. What a shame. The book does seem a little simple in its premise, so not one of my favourites.
