Description

bell hooks is the internationally renowned author of many influential books on politics of race, gender, class and culture. This, her latest book, is a basic guide to feminism, a passionate argument that lends immediacy to the traditional concerns of feminist theory by rooting them in everyday lived experience. Designed to be read by men and women alike, "Feminism is for Everybody" provides a primer to the question "what is feminism?", offering an accessible and concise argument for the enduring importance of the feminist movement today. hooks argues that feminism is simply about seeking an end to sexism, sexist exploitation and oppression. Providing a critical evaluation of the successes and failures of the feminist movement, she looks at a wide variety of topics including reproductive rights, sexual violence, race, class and work. hooks encourages us to look at feminism in a new light, to demand alternatives to patriarchal, racist and homophobic culture, and to seek out a different future.show more
