I have only read Laurie Penny online, but now she is on my list of writers to watch. (This is also how I discovered Rebecca Solnit, author of the fantastic Men Explain Things to Me.) Here are three of Penny’s recent essays, written in response to the wave of sexual harassment revelations made in recent months. I think they are all fantastic:
- We’re All Mad Here: Weinstein, Women, and the Language of Lunacy
- The Unforgiving Minute
- The Consent of the (Un)governed
I guess it’s time for me to pick up one of Ms. Penny’s books.
