Description

An urgent exploration of men’s entitlement and how it serves to police and punish women, from the acclaimed author of Down Girl.

“Kate Manne is a thrilling and provocative feminist thinker. Her work is indispensable.” (Rebecca Traister)

In this bold and stylish critique, Cornell philosopher Kate Manne offers a radical new framework for understanding misogyny. Ranging widely across the culture, from Harvey Weinstein and the Brett Kavanaugh hearings to “Cat Person” and the political misfortunes of Elizabeth Warren, Manne’s book shows how privileged men’s sense of entitlement - to sex, yes, but more insidiously to admiration, care, bodily autonomy, knowledge, and power - is a pervasive social problem with often devastating consequences. 

In clear, lucid prose, Manne argues that male entitlement can explain a wide array of phenomena, from mansplaining and the undertreatment of women’s pain to mass shootings by incels and the seemingly intractable notion that women are “unelectable”. Moreover, Manne implicates each of us in toxic masculinity: It’s not just a product of a few bad actors; it’s something we all perpetuate, conditioned as we are by the social and cultural mores of our time. The only way to combat it, she says, is to expose the flaws in our default modes of thought while enabling women to take up space, say their piece, and muster resistance to the entitled attitudes of the men around them. 

With wit and intellectual fierceness, Manne sheds new light on gender and power and offers a vision of a world in which women are just as entitled as men to our collective care and concern.

Solid Read, Essential Learning

The audio reader is solid and conveys a level of healthy and necessary disdain seemingly prompted by the written word. The temperature of the book is cool and a bit difficult to endure as a male, but it is appropriate and really helps drive home this important message with no fuss. I would have liked to hear more solutions.

New to the subject

this was a subject that I did not know how I would react and I did my best to listen from an unbiased point if you sensed this is a heated topic. I believe overall the book was good, but did not offer solutions to the problems that she said.

Top!

Das Buch bietet einen neuen Denkansatz: Nicht nur dass Männer in unserer Gesellschaft oft privilegiert sind, sondern dass dieses Privileg und und eine zum Teil daraus resultierende Anspruchshaltung in vielen unterschiedlichen Situationen einen negativen Einfluss auf Frauen haben. Das Argument wird an vielen Beispielen hergeleitet und mit Statistiken und Forschungsergebnissen untermauert. Ich würde das Buch wieder kaufen.
