Hood Feminism: Notes from the Women That a Movement Forgot, by Mikki Kendall
challenging dark informative reflective medium-paced
A fantastic book on a complex but necessary subject. I learnt a lot from this book and it made me reflect on how I can be a better accomplice to marginalized women. The book was mostly accessible but my only gripe is that I sometimes found the writing style hard to understand, not sure if that's the result of how complicated the subject is or the way it was edited. Otherwise, an amazing book that everyone should read.
