Wow, for a short book, without too many five dollar words, this work is extremely thorough and requires a lot of work and contemplation on the part of the reader.

hooks covers so much ground, so many facets of feminism in this work. From what consciousness raising is, to reproductive rights, to the impact of beauty standards, race and gender, classism, parenting, hetero and LGB relationships... Feminism is about love, and more, it's about freedom for men and women, to get away from the toxic societal models that are literally killing us.

"Most citizens of this nation still do not understand the link between male domination and male violence. And that failure to understand is underscored as our nation is called upon to respond to violent murders of family members, friends, and schoolmates by young males of all classes."

Feminism, for those in the back, is NOT about hating men. hooks likes men; I love them - most feminists I know, love men as well as women. When hate enters the picture, it's about hating a dynamic that pits men and women against each other, that forces people into stereotypes that don't fit them. hooks addresses the problems created when feminism seemed to become white, academic, and classist, and encourages us all to learn about intersectionality (something I'm not great at yet, but am working on it).

"If feminist movement had not offered a true accounting of the dangers of perpetuating sexism and male domination, it would have failed. There would have been no need to mount an anti-feminist campaign." There's a backlash BECAUSE doing something other than the thing we know, patriarchy, is terrifying to many, and threatens those who might lose their privilege.

Yet if they did, there's so much to be gained, for all of us. Feminism is for everybody.

This is an outstanding book, written clearly and simply, that lays out the modern history and goals of feminism. It's easy to follow, even for someone who isn't already familiar with feminist theory. It's a very smart book that challenges everyone, men and women, to think about power and privilege.

It is essentially one of the foremost informative books on feminism, besides "Why we should all be Feminists?". It makes all the concepts clear, a drawback I have is that there isn't a glossary for all the terms.

Beautifully written! A must read for all women and men to understand that feminism is truly for everybody; we all have a role to stand for women and to support gender rights.

Excellent product and service!!! *****Thank you!
Great book! I was recommended this as a "starter guide" type book to feminism and I'm not 100% sure I'd recommend it for that purpose but it's still a must read if you have interest in feminism.
