Men Explain Things To Me, Rebecca Solnit - Called "a touchstone of the feminist movement," and rightfully so, Men Explain Things To Me is a snarky collection of seven essays putting the all-too-common societal phenomena of male arrogance in its place. Yes, a critique of "mansplaining" before its time. Brilliant!
