Hood Feminism: Notes from the Women That a Movement Forgot, by Mikki Kendall
velsbooknook's review against another edition
I also did not enjoy the writing style. The author wrote in the beginning that she is unapologetic but the way some paragraphs were written just didn't sit right with me. I also had to skip chapter "Reproductive Justice, Eugenics, and Maternal Mortality", due to trigger warnings, which is a bummer because I was very interested in that topic.
It still is a very insightful and interesting book, it just didn't work out the way for me I wish it had.
I was thinking for a long time whether I want to post a review or not. This is by no means a bad review about the book or its contents it simply didn't work out for me. As a white, cis woman I'm trying my best to educate myself and learn how to be a better ally.
