Rebecca Solnit on Feminism and Men

November 17, 2014

“The situation as it has long existed needs to be described bluntly.  Let’s just say that a significant number of men hate women, whether it’s the stranger harassed in the street, the Twitter user threatened into silence online, or the wife who’s beaten.

As a consequence, women face a startling amount of everyday violence and an atmosphere of menace, as well as a host of smaller insults and aggressions meant to keep us down.”

Rebecca Solnit, author of Men Explain Things to Me, writes a tour de force article about men, women and what makes a planet inhabitable.
