Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.  

A vital exploration of gender politics from a highly influential intellectual who has been described as 'the philosopher of #MeToo'.

Male entitlement takes many forms. To sex, yes, but more insidiously to admiration, bodily autonomy, knowledge, power, even care. In this urgent intervention, philosopher Kate Manne offers a radical new framework for understanding misogyny.  

In clear-sighted, powerful prose, she ranges widely across the culture - from the Kavanaugh hearings and 'Cat Person' to Harvey Weinstein and Elizabeth Warren - to show how the idea that a privileged man is tacitly deemed to be owed something is a pervasive problem. 

Male entitlement can explain a wide array of phenomena, from mansplaining and the undertreatment of women's pain to mass shootings by incels and the seemingly intractable notion that women are 'unelectable'. 

The consequences for girls and women are often devastating.  

As Manne shows, toxic masculinity is not just the product of a few bad actors; we are all implicated, conditioned as we are by the currents of our time. With wit and intellectual fierceness, she sheds new light on gender and power and offers a vision of a world in which women are just as entitled as men to be cared for, believed and valued.

Inspiring and challenging

This is a no holds barred account of how difficult life is for women, which men fail to realise. It is a struggle. It’s read very well and is actually quite gripping to listen to. I really enjoyed it. Thanks.
