Rebecca Solnit at the Bristol Festival of Ideas

Solnit returns to Bristol to talk about her new essay collection The Mother of All Questions. In it she points the way towards a new feminism, writing with great thoughtfulness about rape jokes and gender roles; about reproductive choices and the silence of complicity; about the questions women are asked and the narratives we are given. Solnit's writing brings together breathtaking vision and great imagination and this - coupled with a keen sense of injustice - makes her a writer essential for these times.

Rebecca Solnit at the Southbank Centre, London Literature Festival

Following on from the success of Men Explain Things to Me comes a new collection of essays, The Mother of All Questions, in which Rebecca Solnit opens up a feminism for all of us: one that doesn't stigmatise women's lives, whether they include spouses and children or not; that brings empathy to the silences in men's lives as well as the silencing of women's lives; celebrates the ways feminism has shifted in recent years to reclaim rape jokes, revise canons; and inspires us to rethink our everyday lives. In an exclusive London event, Rebecca Solnit reads from her new collection, and discusses how to reimagine feminism for the future.
