men who hate women by laura bates

i’ve been aware of Laura Bates since her ‘Everyday Sexism’ project, but somehow her books slipped past me. thankfully, ‘men who hate women’ was promoted in the guardian’s books section, where i saw it and immediately ordered a copy.

entire book is a chilling read, even if you are a weathered online person, but chapter nine is the scariest. it’s about young people in their formative years, who are absorbing normalised misogyny.

i wish every man, who have ever asked me whether feminism is still relevant, would read this book. because fighting modern misogyny can’t be successful without them.
