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

informative medium-paced


Going to keep this review short because I see most of the top reviews for this one are exactly what I was thinking! An important book that lays out exactly how issues of class, food insecurity, gun violence, racism, and more are inherently feminist issues. 

Given that I'm not new to intersectional feminism, some parts felt basic and some illuminating. It wasn't the smoothest listening experience and I think this could have been improved if the author haven't been chosen as the narrator (even though this seems to be the norm for nonfiction). All in all, I enjoyed the straightforward tone and think this is an essential primer for anyone who is learning or deepening their knowledge of intersectionality.
