Hood Feminism: Notes from the Women That a Movement Forgot, by Mikki Kendall


I went into this book with the assumption that I will learn an average amount of stuff. I just finished this book with an "oh my god, yes!"

I was already aware of most issues talked about in the book but not all. Hearing topics that hit specifically hard in the US made me shocked, because those rarely get brought up around here. I loved especially the last chapter a lot. Every sentence in that one was on point. I have almost the whole chapter marked in my reading app.

I can highly recommend this to anyone that has has done a basic level of research and listening to marginalized communities, because this book takes you from there into the rabbit hole. I really appreciate this book for going deeper on topics that I already saw as important & adding new things onto my internal radar.

Also loved the repeated highlighting of LGBTQ+ individuals and adjacent problems in the book!
