I Hate Men


Pauline Harmange


The feminist book they tried to ban in France

Women, especially feminists and lesbians, have long been accused of hating men. Our instinct is to deny it at all costs. (After all, women have been burnt at the stake for admitting to less.)

But what if mistrusting men, disliking men – and yes, maybe even hating men – is, in fact, a useful response to sexism? What if such a response offers a way out of oppression, a means of resistance? What if it even offers a path to joy, solidarity and sisterhood?

In this sparkling essay, as mischievous and provocative as it is urgent and serious, Pauline Harmange interrogates modern attitudes to feminism and makes a rallying cry for women to find a greater love for each other – and themselves.

I Hate Men is Pauline Harmange’s first book. Originally published by Monstrograph as Moi les hommes, je les déteste, it was subject to a censorship attempt by an adviser in France’s Ministry for Gender Equality in September 2020. Sales skyrocketed as a result and the French rights were then acquired by Éditions du Seuil, and the foreign rights snapped up by publishers around the world. Pauline Harmange lives in Lille.
