Hood Feminism: Notes from the Women White Feminists Forgot

All too often the focus of mainstream feminism is not on basic survival for the many, but on the 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?

A stirring, controversial nad thought-provoking work that will challenge many of your assumptions.
