Based on his provocative and popular New York Times op-ed, The Man They Wanted Me to Be is both memoir and cultural analysis. Jared Yates Sexton alternates between an examination of his working class upbringing and historical, psychological, and sociological sources that examine the genesis of toxic masculinity and its consequences for society. Cristen Conger and Caroline Ervin’s Unladylike is a funny, fact-driven, and illustrated field guide to how to live a feminist life in today’s world, from the hosts of the hit Unladylike podcast. Join these three authors as they discuss gender baggage and the personal and societal dangers of outdated definitions of what it means to be a man or a woman.
