Hood Feminism

Kendall presents a ferocious challenge to the tropes of white feminism that is timely and necessary. At times the book is uncomfortable, but never cruel or dismissive so long as the (white, female) reader is open to expanding their lens of what a successful feminist movement looks like. This book deserves to be included alongside Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s We Should All Be Feminists and Bell Hook’s Ain’t I a Woman as a foundational text for rethinking the feminism movement for the 21st century.
