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


“If we’re going to say this is a movement that cares for all women it has to be one that not only listens to all women but advocates for their basic needs to be met.”

This book is required reading, especially if your brand of feminism is not yet inclusive and intersectional. This book will call you out and it will be uncomfortable at times, but it is such an important read. The most interesting chapters to me were: “Race, Poverty, and Politics” and “Reproductive Justice, Eugenics, and Maternal Mortality”. I learned so much from this book. The discussions were nuanced and well thought out. The audiobook was easy to digest and the author did a great job narrating it.
