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.

tilo's review against another edition
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.
