Manterrupting is the unnecessary interruption of a woman by a man.
The term was first used by Rebecca Solnit in her essay collection compiled in the book Men Explain Things to Me. She defined mansplaining as a man interrupting a woman to explain something she actually knows more about than he does.
Manterrupting is a term that explains often occurring phenomena when a woman is interrupted by a man based on her gender.
The University of California Santa Barbara study indicates that men are three times more likely to interrupt a female than another male. The research suggests that men were likely to talk over women in meetings in a dominant manner that silenced everyone else in the room.
