I've read the first essay before in the internet, so I had some expectations from this book. I think that in the end was my issue, I might've liked it better had I not expected things. The essay about men explaining things was still good, as were some others, but I felt that the quality varied a bit. Also, there was some repetition and I think the subjects jumped a bit. I think this was collected from blog posts, so it's understandable, but I have seen better collections.

Also I feel that if you talk about colonialism that was done by European countries in this kind of volume, it feels a bit hypocrite not to discuss the new form of colonialism done by US in many countries. For me, the essay about colonialism and IMF was the weakest one in the collection. While I don't really disagree, I was a bit disappointed how it was written. I think the essays were better when they were more personal topics.

Still, I think this is an important collection, especially since the one essay started the whole mansplaining discussion. Also the discussion on rape culture and how society raises men who feel entitled to control others, and especially women, was really on point. I feel that all the topics raised in the book were important, but the quality of writing/arguments were better in some than in others. But it's a quick read and if one is used to reading blogs, this is very familiar writing style. ( )

So very good. I suggest that you read this if you have time. It's fantastic and there are so many stats that will make your head swim. To be a woman in the world means you are intrinsically in danger. Most of that danger comes from men and even from well-meaning men who just can't help "explaining" things to women.

It's hard to be at work in the position that I'm in it having to report to men who don't know as much as me about a subject, but often feel the need to tell me that something that I told them was totally not working in the way that it should be. And all cases it has been shown I was still right, they were still wrong, they just took very shity directions. I swear 90% of my job is now just responding to complaints about things that would be resolved if people would slow down and actually listen to me the first time when I spoke to them.

Solnit does a great job of breaking this up and focusing on key things surrounding violence against women, rape, rape culture, sexual harassment, and even why conservatives seem to have it out for women issues.

"Every woman knows what I’m talking about. It’s the presumption that makes it hard, at times, for any woman in any field; that keeps women from speaking up and from being heard when they dare; that crushes young women into silence by indicating, the way harassment on the street does, that this is not their world. It trains us in self-doubt and self-limitation just as it exercises men’s unsupported overconfidence."

"About three women a day are murdered by spouses or ex-spouses in this country. It’s one of the main causes of death for pregnant women in the United States. At the heart of the struggle of feminism to give rape, date rape, marital rape, domestic violence, and workplace sexual harassment legal standing as crimes has been the necessity of making women credible and audible."

"Most women fight wars on two fronts, one for whatever the putative topic is and one simply for the right to speak, to have ideas, to be acknowledged to be in possession of facts and truths, to have value, to be a human being."

Rape culture is now the topic of the day due to the me too movement, Women's March initiatives, and Hollywood's Time's Up cause. One hopes that these are not just flash in the pan social media blitzes and that there are going to be more thought and discussion on how to include all women as well as women in every industry. ( )

Seven short essays that demand attention and reward it. I'm just a bloke, but I hope I'm smart enough to understand that rape culture is real and that mansplaining is part of something bigger and more pernicious than just being a dick to people. ( )

Solnit is quickly becoming one of my top auto-buy authors.

Her writing is honest and cuts write to the heart of the matter. She doesn't pull any punches when it comes to making her point but she takes the time to walk you through her logic and the ideas that are being discussed.

I loved all of the essays in this collection and each one I read I had that moment where you just want to stand up wherever you are and yell "YES! - THIS! ALL OF THIS!" ( )

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"
