The Silence Machine


As follow up on my last post, today I’m sharing the latest brilliance from Rebecca Solnit: In Patriarchy, No One Can Hear You Scream.

Epstein, Trump, Weinstein, R. Kelly and other power players not only get away with decades of child rape, they run industries and institutions that shape the world in which we live. That’s only possible with the support of rape-culture cronies including business partners, friends, family, neighbors, coworkers, employees, cops, attorneys, judges and old boys club government officials.

For a full analysis with Solnit’s usual brilliance, read In Patriarchy, No One Can Hear You Scream at LitHub.com.
