Product Description

I'm a feminist. Mostly.
I'm an asshole. Mostly.

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.

Author: Mikki Kendall

Trade Paperback  Published March 2020  288 pages

“Required reading for any feminist, Kendall explores why mainstream feminism neglects to see how race, class, sexual orientation and disability intersects with gender with a clear-eyed assessment of how to fix it” –  Evening Standard, The best books to look forward to in 2020

“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,
