The National Book Critics Circle Awardwinning author delivers a collection of essays that serve as the perfect "antidote to mansplaining" (The Stranger).

In her comic, scathing essay "Men Explain Things to Me," Rebecca Solnit took on what often goes wrong in conversations between men and women. She wrote about men who wrongly assume they know things and wrongly assume women don't, about why this arises, and how this aspect of the gender wars works, airing some of her own hilariously awful encounters.

She ends on a serious note because the ultimate problem is the silencing of women who have something to say, including those saying things like, "He's trying to kill me!"

This book features that now-classic essay with six perfect complements, including an examination of the great feminist writer Virginia Woolf's embrace of mystery, of not knowing, of doubt and ambiguity, a highly original inquiry into marriage equality, and a terrifying survey of the scope of contemporary violence against women.

"In this series of personal but unsentimental essays, Solnit gives succinct shorthand to a familiar female experience that before had gone unarticulated, perhaps even unrecognized." The New York Times

"Essential feminist reading." The New Republic

"This slim book hums with power and wit." Boston Globe

"Solnit tackles big themes of gender and power in these accessible essays. Honest and full of wit, this is an integral read that furthers the conversation on feminism and contemporary society." San Francisco Chronicle

"Essential." Marketplace

"Feminist, frequently funny, unflinchingly honest and often scathing in its conclusions." Salon

Sono rimasta un po’ delusa da questa raccolta di saggi e/o articoli di Solnit: è uno di quei casi nei quali il dibattito che è seguito alla coniazione del concetto di mansplaining (uomini che spiegano cose alle donne che hanno conoscenze e competenze superiori in quell’ambito) è molto più interessante del testo da cui tutto ha avuto origine.

È però un ottimo esempio di come funziona la circolazione delle idee e delle pratiche femministe: sono le riflessioni e le lotte collettive a essere ricordate e diffuse piuttosto che i nomi delle singole femministe. Ovviamente ci sono e ci sono state femministe celebri (e sicuramente Solnit e una di loro), ma nessun nome spicca al tal punto da mettere in ombra le riflessioni e le azioni collettive. Solnit ha iniziato un discorso e molte altre lo hanno raccolto e portato avanti, arricchendolo anche con aspetti ai quali Solnit magari non aveva pensato perché lontani dalla sua esperienza personale.

Il mansplaining può sembrare una sciocchezza, una di quelle questioni ingigantite dalla donne che ai giorni nostri si lamentano di ogni cosa. Che tipo di minaccia può costituire un uomo ignorante e arrogante che si mette a spiegarti qualcosa che è il tuo campo di studi o di lavoro (e a volte pure la tua esperienza di vita) e che quindi conosci benissimo e sicuramente meglio di lui che ha letto solo un articolo su Internet?

Il problema è che quell’atteggiamento fastidioso è il sintomo della difficoltà delle donne a essere prese sul serio e credute nello spazio pubblico. Uno dei ambiti più drammatici in cui questo avviene è sicuramente quello giudiziario, dove a denunciare violenze e stupri si deve ancora dimostare di essere credibili prima che la propria accusa sia presa sul serio. E non mi riferisco al normale corso delle indagini, che ovviamente hanno bisogno di prove, ma del processo all’attendibilità della vittima: era ubriaca? era troppo disinibita? era nel posto sbagliato? si è fidata della persona sbagliata?

Se non sei la vittima “perfetta”, sarà tutto un dover dimostrare di essere attendibile. ( )

I did not want to miss Solnit's essays, so this book helped me catch up on some of them. While some of the offerings are more interesting than others, I read and enjoyed them all. ( )

I hate to give this only two stars, but there wasn’t much to this small book. As a woman holding a public office, I frequently have men explain things to me in belittling and condescending ways. There’s so much more Solnit could have explored on this topic beyond the fairly thin title essay. There are better books on feminism out there. ( )

Passionate and beautifully written

And sadly, it's not dated.

I'm just not one to read a book of essays straight through. Anybody else would probably give it 5 stars. ( )

Féministe, revendicatif et engagé !

Un recueil d’articles brillants, pointus et parfois drôles qui sentent l’exaspération de l’impatience. Le monde et les mentalités changent, heureusement, mais il reste tant de travail et d’inégalités.

Les articles abordent différentes facettes, et du coup, c’est parfois redondant. Mais il est aussi bon de dire et redire ! ( )

For the grandmothers, the levelers, the dreamers, the men who get it, the young women who keep going, the older ones who opened the way, the conversations that don't end, and a world that will let Ella Nachimovitz (born January 2014) bloom to her fullest

The difference between these online gamers and the Taliban men who, last October, tried to murder fourteen-year-old Malala Yousafzai for speaking out about the right of Pakistani women to education is one of degree. Both are trying to silence and punish women for claiming voice, power, and the right to participate. Welcome to Manistan. "The Longest War"
Kindness and gentleness never had a gender, and neither did empathy. "The Longest War"
Every woman who appears wrestles with the forces that would have her disappear. She struggles with the forces that would tell her story for her, or write her out of the story, the genealogy, the rights of man, the rule of law. The ability to tell your own story, in words or images, is already a victory, already a revolt. "Grandmother Spider"
It's the job of writers and explorers to see more, to travel light when it comes to preconception, to go into the dark with their eyes open. "Woolf's Darkness"
To me, the grounds for hope are simply that we don't know what will happen next, and that the unlikely and the unimaginable transpire quite regularly. "Woolf's Darkness"
