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.

crazytourists_books's review against another edition
I am a white, European (greek living in the UK for the past 7 years), cis, heterosexual, middle class, woman with a higher education degree (PhD) and a mother of two.
I know I am privileged, and even biased on occasions (it is hard work to try and navigate in the world in a different manner than you were taught since birth, but a work worth doing might I add) and I do believe that there is one kind of feminism. And that is intersectional feminism. If not intersectional, then it is not feminism.
It was hard for me to relate with the book, not because I don't (mostly) agree with what the author says, but because the US reality is very far from my reality. The only knowledge I have for the life struggles in that part of the world is through articles and books, documentaries and films. And the more I read, the more I realise that things are much harder than most people think.
There were a few things in the book that I don't agree with but I am not sure if I want to include them in my "review" here. And that's because I am not sure if the reason is my privilege, my lack of knowledge about the US life realities, or my different point of view (privileged or not).
My biggest problem with it, was its poor editing. It was more like a stream of consciousness, quite hard to follow.
An interesting book nevertheless
