The Witches Are Coming book cover
The Witches Are Coming
Lindy West - 2019-11-05
Goodreads Rating
This cultural critique exposes misogyny in the #MeToo era through a hilarious and incisive examination of American politics and culture. The author, whose critically acclaimed memoir and Hulu series "Shrill" made waves, takes on the idea that the movement is a witch hunt and challenges readers to confront the lies and delusions that have enabled white male mediocrity to dominate American politics and culture. West's writing is both entertaining and illuminating, making this a must-read for those seeking the truth about the current state of America.

@TakedownMRAs @Pevenly1 Have you read Lindy West on this? She has a great chapter in The Witches are Coming that starts with this story. Highly recommend the whole book.      source
Entitled book cover
How Male Privilege Hurts Women
Kate Manne - 2020-08-11
Goodreads Rating
A radical and urgent critique on male entitlement and how it perpetuates the policing and punishing of women, from the acclaimed author of Down Girl. With examples ranging from Harvey Weinstein to the undertreatment of women's pain, Kate Manne argues that male entitlement is a pervasive social problem with devastating consequences. By exposing the flaws in our default modes of thought and empowering women to resist entitled attitudes, Manne offers a powerful vision of a world where women are just as entitled to care and concern as men.

Rage Becomes Her by @schemaly is tied with @kate_manne’s, Entitled, for the top slot on my list of books that will change the way you understand the world around you. Cannot recommend these brilliant women enough. Read them, listen on audible, whatever you like - do that.      source
