This week, we return to Down Girl by Kate Manne, Cornell University philosophy professor. It was the subject of last week’s book chat, but the interview was so insightful that producer Michele Zipkin and I decided to publish my interview with her in its entirety. In it, we discussed the complex ways in which misogyny works, the persistent problem of how men are exonerated, how Donald Trump both is and is not a good example of a misogynist, and why this was such a difficult book for her to write.

You can find last week’s episode, Undoing Misogyny, with the New Republic’s Josephine Livingstone and Kate Manne here.

Guest:

Kate Manne is assistant professor at the Sage School of Philosophy at Cornell University and the author of Down Girl: The Logic of Misogyny. Before that, she was a junior fellow at the Harvard Society of Fellows from 2011 to 2013. She holds a Ph.D. in philosophy at MIT from 2006 to 2011. Follow her on Twitter: @kate_manne.
