A very difficult but absolutely necessary and powerful overview of the misogyny women are dealing with everyday. While admittedly a generalized and western hemisphere focused commentary, Manne does an excellent job of explaining some of the core issues the United States is suffering from as a society, specifically regarding misogynistic topics like Harvey Weinstein and the spark of the #MeToo movement, and the Brett Kavanugh hearings. There’s a lot of large pills to swallow in this book, and this is definitely a book to take your time reading because of this and the anger it will stir inside you, but I think it's important not only for women to read so they may awaken to the toxic masculinity all around them, but also men--specifically, men in politics--should read this so they can better understand how male entitlement is negatively affecting women and society, and to better govern and protect our rights. ~ Reviewed by Kirstin Swartz
