Hood Feminism

- Mikki Jendall

( Hardback )


‘It is absolutely brilliant, I think every woman should read it’ PANDORA SYKES, THE HIGH LOW

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.

‘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 GILBERT
