Starting Oct. 2, join our Feminist Fall Book Club via Zoom to discuss Mikki Kendall’s book, “Hood Feminism: Notes from the Women a Movement Forgot” (2020). Kendall’s prose is incisive but accessible, a must-read for any would-be intersectional feminist or anti-racist ally.
Book summary: Drawing on her own experiences with hunger, violence, and hypersexualization, along with commentary on politics, pop culture, the stigma of mental health, and more, “Hood Feminism” is a rousing call to action for today’s feminists.
As a Black Feminist, Kendall and examines the ways that the mainstream feminist movement has succeeded in advancing the rights of some women while failing others, citing the need to center access to basic needs and those of women who are most marginalized, including black women, women of color, and queer people.
