A manifesto that aims to establish a new social contract between women and men. Because it’s a must that we build a more equitable world, a juster and more inclusive one. And it’s a must that we do it now.
“This book isn’t a memorial to all the cruelties that we men, as privileged subjects, have committed through the course of history. This book doesn’t pretend to be a settling of accounts with men – but with the patriarchy, yes. This book looks at the present, and above all, at the future. Because what it attempts to do is put men in front of the mirror so we can reflect on all those things we shouldn’t be and see the path we should take to rebuild ourselves in a new way. New men who can make possible the end of a society in which we will no longer be the powerful and women will no longer be the oppressed.”
