By Manne, Kate
Down Girl is an exploration of misogyny in public life and politics. Kate Manne argues that misogyny should not be understood primarily in terms of the hatred or hostility some men feel toward all or most women. Rather, it's primarily about controlling, policing, punishing, and e...xiling the bad women who challenge male dominance. And it's compatible with rewarding the good ones, and singling out other women to serve as warnings to those who are out of order. She applies her powerful theory to a wide range of public life but particularly politics. The paperback features a new preface to the paperback edition discussing the extensive publicity and discussion that accompanied hardcover publication.Read more
