When the term “mansplaining” pops up, Rebecca Solnit instantly comes to mind. Her essays are darkly funny, and amazingly powerful. I am blessed to know many feminist men, and am proud to be married to a man wearing a #heforshe tshirt at this very moment, but I have also sat with my right eyebrow cocked in disbelief as men “explain” things to me that I already know, or regurgitate something that I have just said. I first read Solnit’s slim essay volume almost a year ago, and continue to find it a source of pleasure, amusement and recognition. Please pick it up. It is worth it. #mansplain #read #kalidesautelsreads #positive via @RiplApp #menexplainthingstome #rebeccasolnit #essay #essays #essayist #bookstagram #books #bookshelf #rereading #read #reading #reader #feminism #feminist #feministlit #iconic #bibliophile #blogger #blog #review

Originally intended to simply focus on book reviews, over time, KaliDesautelsReads has morphed into its own entity.
I write about issues that are near to my heart, be they political, feminist, motherhood, mental health, or, as the title holds, books.
A thirty-something Canadian woman in my mid-thirties, I have been "super married" to my high school sweetheart since 2006, and together we have two crazy, clever, kind, hilarious, wonderful kids.
My first book - How Not To Blog: Finding Myself, One Post at a Time is available on Amazon (in eBook formats for you clever tech readers, and paperback for those of us who love that new book smell!)
I have tried a podcast - it's still on Apple and Google Podcasts - but writing is where my heart is.
My life changed dramatically when my husband was diagnosed with Stage 3 cancer in 2018, and I am now a writer for a leading Canadian Cancer Non-Profit.
I am lucky enough to have a family that loves me and pushes me to be my best, even if it is outside of my cushiony comfort zone. I have a village of friends that nourish me, mentally, and spiritually.
Welcome to my thoughts. Sit down. Stay a while. Enjoy a cup of coffee!
