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.

What I enjoyed so much about this book is it forces us to challenge not only white feminism and white s*premacy, but to ask ourselves what is actually being centered in feminism altogether, especially to those who consider ourselves allies not just to women who look like us. This book helps us all learn about how white s*premacy, cissexism, classism, and other isms have seeped into every aspect of women's lives (cis, trans, gnc), aspects we do not necessarily consider feminist because some of the most sensationalized feminist topics include abortion, sexual objectification, or gender roles. Instead, or rather more fiercely, we need to address, discuss, and combat issues of survival for ALL women such as gun violence, poverty and a lack of quality healthcare.
This book is for everyone also who thinks that just because we aren't Karens, that we can't embody some characteristics of Karens in feminism.
