"[Solnit's] ability to make a landscape into a text is present in every piece of writing she’s ever done, and especially here. Solnit understands that our minds are also landscapes, that they are uncharted territory and we must constantly have something left to discover within ourselves. When men explain things to me, personally, it’s like feeling someone else draw up the borders of my brain. When men explaining things” becomes a concept, we react so strongly because it’s a map that we can use to bring us back to ourselves. The terrain has always felt familiar, but Men Explain Things To Me is a tool that we all need in order to find something that was almost lost."
"Where opponents would argue that feminism is humorless and superfluous, Men Explain Things to Me is a compelling argument for the movement's necessary presence in contemporary society. It approaches the subject with candor and openness, furthering the conversation and opening a new Pandora's box that's apt to change the way we talk about women's rights."
"It is feminist, frequently funny, unflinchingly honest and often scathing in its conclusions."
"A necessary read in these fraught times. Starting with the title essay, which went viral and inspired the ever-useful term mansplaining,” Solnit writes powerfully about the ways in which power is wielded in today’s society, and brings awareness to the staggering inequalities that we wrestle with on a daily basis."
"Sharp-witted and bold... quintessential Solnit."
Publishers Weekly, "Things We Like This Week" Blog
"Sharp narratives that illuminate and challenge the status quo of women's roles in the world. Slim in scope, but yet another good book by Solnit."
"I can’t place this book as anything less than a brilliant, varied, and thoroughly enjoyable readand definitely an addition to my list of feminist faves. With that, I urge you to get to your favorite bookshop or library and snag a copy of Men Explain Things to Me. Pull up a chair, brew something tasty, and venture into the wilderness of what a changed world might look like." Lip
Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende
Writer, historian, and activist Rebecca Solnit is the author of eighteen or so books on feminism, western and indigenous history, popular power, social change and insurrection, wandering and walking, hope and disaster, including the books Men Explain Things to Me and Hope in the Dark, both also with Haymarket; a trilogy of atlases of American cities; The Faraway Nearby; A Paradise Built in Hell: The Extraordinary Communities that Arise in Disaster; A Field Guide to Getting Lost; Wanderlust: A History of Walking; and River of Shadows, Eadweard Muybridge and the Technological Wild West (for which she received a Guggenheim, the National Book Critics Circle Award in criticism, and the Lannan Literary Award). A product of the California public education system from kindergarten to graduate school, she is a columnist at Harper's and a regular contributor to the Guardian.
Overall empathizing felt hard since none of the sinister, evil things that are mentioned are me. I am neither the head of the IMF nor did I kill and butcher my wife. I didn't marry and if I were to I wouldn't eradicate my wife's name nor her family tree. The text allowed me to detach too easily, so overall I would say this text is more addressed to women than men (which isn't a bad thing mind you). I'm pretty sure it's five stars for female readers easily for it will ring true. I'm simply not female so it's impossible for me to write a review from that perspective (sorry about that)
Dieses Buch kann man im Regal neben Lena Dunham stellen und nie wieder heraus nehmen - Popkultur, die nichts zu sagen hat. Schade!
