Men Explain Things to Me - Rebecca Solnit

Time to catch up on some books I read a while ago!

Men Explain Things to Me is a short book of feminist essays. Or put another way, a bunch of notes on how men make life crap for women. Which is to undersell it, because Solnit is clearly incredible bright and incisive, and these essays are a lot more than just that.

It's another one of the recommendations from one of work's book clubs. In places it's fun. It's not preachy. It just talks about stuff. As a man, I really don't feel qualified to judge it or deeply analyse it. I just read it and remind myself to try to be a better human.
