Hood Feminism

Mikki Kendall

£9.99

All too often the focus of mainstream feminism is not on the basic survival for the many, but on increasing privilege for the few. Meeting basic needs is a feminist issue. Food insecurity, the living wage, access to education and medical care are feminist issues. The fight against racism, ableism and transmisogyny are all feminist issues. How can feminists stand in solidarity as a movement without addressing these issues? 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.

Description

‘It is absolutely brilliant, I think every woman should read it’ PANDORA SYKES, THE HIGH LOW‘My wish is that every white woman who calls herself a feminist will read this book in a state of hushed and humble respect … Essential reading’ ELIZABETH GILBERTAll 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.
