rieviolet's review against another edition
What I appreciated the most was the intersectionality, the broad focus on all aspects of social justice relating to race, class, gender and sexuality.
Without a doubt it was an important and eye-opening reading experience, that really made me understand the necessity to keep learning and trying to translate what I learn into effective action and behaviour.
Real feminism (if such a thing can be defined) isn't going to be found in replicating racist, transphobic, homophobic, ableist, or classit norms. But we are all human, all flawed in our ways, and perhaps most important, none of us are immune to the environment that surrounds us. We are part of the society that
we are fighting to change, and we cannot absolve ourselves of our role in it.

Kendall's writing style is easy to read, with the right amount of statistics, discussions, examples and memoir. She illuminates how many foundational needs are still unmet by many women, mostly those who are poor and of color. I was enlightened and ashamed it too me so long to realize this.
I highly recommend the audiobook, which Kendall narrates herself. However, I purchased a copy of the hardcover before I had even finished listening. I knew I was going to want to annotate this nonfiction and reread it near immediately. This is a must read for all the feminists out there!

It was a weird read for me as a first gen immigrant college student that spent most of her life in a part of the world with very different race dynamics. Technically I am white in the US so I felt like a lot of the anger was directed at me even though I haven't really had the time or power to have an impact on US power systems. But I think that's my own desire to be liked by everyone, and I just need to get over it. Anyway, kind of ties into the fact that you have to read this book prepared to put your own emotional issues aside and just listen to an angry Black woman tell you how the systems are broken. I still learned a lot and I really recommend the book.
I always feel conflicted about rating books highlighting minority issues. On the one hand, I want this book to have more exposure because I think it could kindle new thoughts and actions in white feminists. On the other, I don't really feel qualified to judge the book because I'm not part of most of these minorities. This wasn't my favorite read of all time. But I think it's an important book to spotlight because it doesn't make you feel like just by reading it you've become a better person, it demands action. And I think that's a really important part of the conversation we're continuing to have.
