How Male Privilege Hurts Women

Book cover for "Entitled"

Kate Manne is known for coining the term “himpathy,” popularized in her New York Times piece on the Kavanaugh hearings, and has become a leading voice on how sexism and misogyny manifest in our politics. Her new book is "Entitled: How Male Privilege Hurts Women."

In the book, Manne exposes how male entitlement works in tandem with misogyny, himpathy, and other oppressive systems to produce unjust, perverse, and sometimes bizarre outcomes. Manne’s analysis of our current culture illustrates the extent of male entitlement’s hold on our society.
