Reviews

  • Entitled is not just timely, but timeless-sure to be part of the feminist canon.

    Jessica Valenti, author of SEX OBJECT: A MEMOIR
  • Kate Manne continues to be a thrilling and provocative feminist thinker, who helps readers make sense of how power and privilege is distributed along gendered lines. Her work is indispensable.

    Rebecca Traister, author of GOOD & MAD
  • Entitled is a clarion call to undo the intimate ravages of patriarchy. With probing clarity, Manne analyzes both the explicit and implicit ways that advantage and preference are granted to elite men, to the detriment of our families, communities and democracy, and makes it strikingly clear that we all have a direct role in pursuing a feminist future.

    Imani Perry, author of LOOKING FOR LORRAINE and BREATHE
  • Kate Manne is among the greatest political philosophers of her generation. Her work is clear, compelling and intellectually devastating, and it matters to everyone who cares about thinking a way through to a better future.

    Laurie Penny, author of UNSPEAKABLE THINGS
  • Kate Manne has a special talent for articulating and expanding on the implicit norms of patriarchal society-and the damage those norms wreak on its citizenry. Entitled is electric.

    Darcy Lockman, author of ALL THE RAGE
  • With eloquent prose and irrefutable evidence, Kate Manne gives voice to a twenty-first century rage. Entitled builds on Manne's earlier work on the forces of systemic patriarchy and the eternal frustration felt by generations of women forced year after year to fight for egalitarianism at the most fundamental levels. One of our most prophetic and gifted feminist voices today, Manne's work is as necessary as sunlight. Your anger may not be quelled by the final page, but at least you'll feel less alone ... A staggering, timely read.

    Rachel Louise Snyder, author of NO VISIBLE BRUISES
  • In Entitled, Kate Manne gets right to the heart of gender, power, and inequality: What men presume they deserve, and what women learn we owe. The result is an unflinching indictment of male entitlement in nearly every aspect of modern life. Entitled is exactly what we need to understand our current moment-and to imagine something better.

    Jill Filipovic, author of THE H-SPOT
  • Kate Manne is the Simone de Beauvoir of the 21st century. In Entitled, she compellingly lays out the stubborn social assumptions behind our still-sexist cultural norms. Manne's writing is as breezy as it is sharp and unflinching, and will give any patriarchy-fighter the ammo she needs to keep fighting.

    Amanda Marcotte, Salon
  • Kate Manne's brilliant breakdown of male entitlement is essential to understanding the world we live in. Her thinking about this critical and complex topic is characteristically incisive, perceptive, and profound. Now, more than ever, Entitled is an absolute must-read!

    Soraya Chemaly, author of RAGE BECOMES HER
  • Kate Manne tackles the kaleidoscopic manifestations of male entitlement with insights as invigorating as her subject matter is frustrating. Her thinking is so elegant and her theory of male entitlement as a symptom of a moral economy in which women are perpetually in men's debt is so groundbreaking that the book is sure to spark and inspire other feminist writers. Entitled is the work of a once-in-a-generation mind, and as always, Manne succeeds in leaving feminism richer and more robust than when she found it.
