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.

I think this is a great starting point for someone who is interested in expanding their view of feminism from what is portrayed in mainstream circles to what actually brings about support and care for communities. Kendall weaves her own experiences in with larger lessons that are both accessible and informative. I had expected the book to expand a bit more on each topic but with the breadth of what Kendall discusses I now understand that that would have made the book too long. Instead, I will be using this as a starting point to look for other books that tackle each of the supporting sections in turn. I highly recommend this book, whether you are just starting to tackle the problems with mainstream feminism or someone who has already read more about this subject.
