"Narrator Tanya Eby's careful diction and smooth delivery are ideal for Rebecca Solnit's powerful essays on feminism." ---AudioFile

"These short, incisive essays that pack a powerful punch." ---Publishers Weekly

"A keen and timely commentary on gender and feminism. Solnit’s voice is calm, clear, and unapologetic; each essay balances a warm wit with confident, thoughtful analysis, resulting in a collection that is as enjoyable and accessible as it is incisive." ---Booklist

"A thought-provoking and important anthology." ---Library Journal

"Trenchant and hopeful, the book reveals that the ongoing work of righting the wrongs of patriarchy is only part of a much larger project of social justice for all people. As always, Solnit is eloquent and sharply insightful." ---Kirkus
