Men Who Hate Women

Men Who Hate Women

by Laura Bates


Short for 'involuntarily celibate,' the online community known as 'incels' is mostly known for their reputation as misogynistic keyboard warriors. But with several incel-inspired mass killings in recent years, their beliefs and impact are finding more ways into the real world.

Laura Bates is an author and founder of the Everyday Sexism Project, which provides a safe space online for people to record their experiences of sexism. In this book, Bates navigates through incel forums posing as a disillusioned young man named Alex, in order to fully understand the nuances of the incel world and how easy it is for men to fall into it.

Favorite quote

Even when a mass killing takes place that has no apparent connection to incels, the incelosphere froths with delight and speculation that the perpetrator might have been one of them.
