Ain't I a Woman: Black Women & Feminism

by bell hooks
£18.99   paperback  Pluto Press (1983)

Ain In this classic study, bell hooks examines how black women, from the 17th century to the present day, were and are oppressed by both white men and black men and by white women. Illustrating her analysis with moving personal accounts, Ain't I a Woman is deeply critical of the racism inherent in the thought of many middle-class white feminists who have failed to address issues of race and class. While acknowledging the conflict of loyalty to race or sex is a dilemma, bell hooks challenges the view that race and gender are two seperate phenomena to insist that the struggle to end racism and sexism are inextricably intertwined.

"Provocative and inspiring ... a timely jolt to all those who fondly believe theya re free of racist and sexist prejudices."
(New Statesman)
