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.

There wery many observations, ideas, and suggestions in this book that I found helpful for my own mindset, even when they might not have been completely new to me. It is important to note that this book does require you to be familiar with feminism, otherwise it is not as accessible. This is due to the fact that Kendall directs her words mainly to white mainstream feminists. I think anyone who considers themself a feminist should look into the ideas of this work and reflect upon them.
