Waterstones Says

A bold, brave and insightful book about how the multiplicity of twenty-first century narratives intersect and conflict, Hood Feminism argues that feminism is in danger of losing its way if it does not embrace wider issues of race, gender and class. Deploying provocative arguments and reaching controversial, fiercely argued conclusions, Kendall’s incendiary volume is an urgently needed modern manifesto.      

'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 GILBERT 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.

“A vital tool for dismantling ineffective feminism”

‘The fundamental problem with white feminism has always been that it refuses to admit that the primary goal is shifting power to white women and no one else.’

This sums up Kendall’s main focus in Hood Feminism:... More
