Men Explain Things To Me ~ Rebecca Solnit



KaliDesautelsReads



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
