Rebecca Solnit, author of Hope in the Dark and Men Explain Things to Me, has had her finger on the pulse of the American culture for over three decades. From popularizing the term “mansplaining” to her bestselling atlases of San Francisco, New Orleans, and New York City, Solnit has indelibly shaped the American feminist lexicon.

Join this giant of American letters as she discusses her new essay collection, The Mother of All Questions. In her most poignant collection to date, Solnit's focus returns unflinchingly to the male gaze, revealing instances of latent misogyny, documenting the violence incited by the rise of rape humor, and praising the women who confront these obstacles every day and refuse to be silenced.
