Hood Feminism by Mikki Kendall
Black & Beech Bookshop
We are excited to introduce a new range of books dealing with themes close to our hearts with texts by everyone from Audre Lorde to Anain Nin. A perfect addition to any order to feed your mind and soul.
My wish is that every white woman who calls herself a feminist (as I do) will read this book in a state of hushed and humble respect ... It's long overdue that we drop our defenses, listen to her arguments carefully, and then change our entire way of thinking and behaving ... Essential reading -- Elizabeth Gilbert
All too often the focus of mainstream feminism is not on basic survival for the many, but on increasing privilege for the few. White feminists often fail to see how race, class, sexual orientation and disability intersect with gender. How can feminists stand in solidarity as a movement when there is a distinct likelihood that some women are oppressing others? Insightful, incendiary and ultimately hopeful, Hood Feminism is both an irrefutable indictment of a movement in flux and also clear-eyed assessment of how to save it.
