Hood Feminism: Notes from the Women White Feminists Forgot

by Mikki Kendall - £16.99  Bloomsbury Publishing PLC (2020)
hardback    ISBN 13: 9781526622402 | ISBN 10: 1526622408

All too often the focus of mainstream feminism is not on basic survival for the many, but on increasing privilege for the few.
 
Meeting basic needs is a feminist issue. Food insecurity, the living wage and access to education are feminist issues. The fight against racism, ableism and transmisogyny are all feminist issues.
 
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.
