    1. A really enjoyable book to read!I truly hope more men would start becoming aware about this issue…A very important book!


    2. Livre extrêmement fédérateur pour les femmes victimes "malgré elles" de sexisme, et qui met très bien en avant le continuum des violences sexistes, des plus anodines aux plus flagrantes.A mettre entre toutes les mains, femmes comme hommesTENTIONEst en anglais.


    3. This book is really interesting, yet I think the title is not really appropriated since we talk more about women and their fights than the true position of men faced to it.


    4. I bought this book for my brother-in-law shortly after my sister gave birth to a daughter. I thought it would be a fun “Hey, you have a daughter, this might be a good thing to start thinking about”-type gift.

And, of course, beyond the equality issue, there's always the inherent danger involved simply because you are born female. I was continually warned and told what I could do, what I could wear and where I could go. I lived in a 3rd World country as an adolescent, and believe me, [...]


    7. In a series of six essays, Solnit explores the current state of relations between men and women, not just in the US, but throughout the world. It's not pretty. The title essay, in which Solnit describes an encounter with a blowhard who fails to realize that she is, in fact, the author of the book he's recommending to her, is wryly funny. But many of the others, which deal with violence against women, are anything but. From the gang-rape, torture, and murder of Jyoti Singh in Delhi, to a campus p [...]
