and oppression.' So begins Feminism is for Everybody, a short,
accessible introduction to feminist theory by one of its most
influential practitioners. Designed to be read by all genders, this book
provides both a primer to the question 'what is feminism?' and an
argument for the enduring importance of the feminist movement today.
Beginning with a broad survey of feminism's most important themes and
concerns, bell hooks demystifies contentious concepts and turns apparent
ideology into common sense.
Providing a critical evaluation of the successes and failures of contemporary feminism, she looks at a wide variety of topics including reproductive rights, sexual violence, race, class and work. hooks encourages us to demand alternatives to patriarchal, racist and homophobic culture and thereby to seek out a different future.
