In the feminist tract, Ms. Kendall illuminates the plight of women marginalized by the white mainstream feminist movement—whether unconsciously overlooked or deliberately erased. The chapters focus on feminist issues often ignored or downplayed: gun violence, food insecurity, poverty, race, sexuality, minority parenting issues. In doing so, Ms. Kendall crafts a solid argument that the problems with mainstream feminism’s lack of intersectionality sometimes cause or exacerbate the issues already facing non-mainstream women. The book tends to overgeneralize in places, ramble a bit, and repeat itself at times, but the inclusion of Ms. Kendall’s personal experiences added needed color to what sometimes was dry statistical argument. Despite the flaws I perceived, this book brings good arguments to the table.… (mere)

I LOVED this book when I was reading it. Shortly after finishing it I posted on Instagram "amazing! so necessary and authoritative and ferocious!" I then saw a criticism of this book that it was not written for Black women, or even for women well-versed in intersectional feminism, but for Well Meaning White Women, and I immediately began questioning everything about my experience of reading this book.

But picking it up again, reading the cover copy, the blurbs, flipping through and reading snippets of the essays, I think that this is exactly what the book sets out to be. It is a reminder of who mainstream feminism does and does not serve. A reminder that looking out for the most marginalized ALWAYS benefits us all. A reminder about intersections — particularly those dealing with skin color. If those aren't reminders you need, there might not be much new in this book for you. But some of us need those reminders periodically, and I found this effective on that front.… (mere)

"Hood Feminism" by Mikki Kendall is a groundbreaking and thought-provoking book that deserves a solid 5/5 stars. Kendall's insightful exploration of intersectional feminism not only challenges traditional feminist narratives but also provides a fresh perspective that is crucial for everyone to consider.

Kendall's writing skillfully addresses the gaps in mainstream feminism, highlighting the importance of including issues such as race, class, and accessibility in the feminist movement. Her emphasis on the experiences and struggles faced by women of color, low-income women, and marginalized communities is both eye-opening and empowering.

This book is a must-read for everyone, as it encourages readers to broaden their understanding of feminism and become more inclusive in their advocacy for gender equality. It is particularly valuable for white women and men who may not have fully grasped the depth of intersectionality within feminism. Kendall's passionate and eloquent writing invites readers to engage in essential conversations about privilege and solidarity.

In "Hood Feminism," Mikki Kendall challenges us to be better allies and to recognize that feminism is not a one-size-fits-all movement. It's an empowering and enlightening read that will undoubtedly leave a lasting impact, making it a 5-star recommendation for anyone interested in social justice and gender equality.

Hood Feminism is an engaging collection of essays that examines intersectional feminism. (aka the connection/overlap of feminism to hunger, the housing crisis, Black women’s maternal health, education, and more). When we think of feminism, what usually comes to mind is equal pay, abortion, and women’s suffrage. Hood Feminism shows us that the traditional embodiment of feminism focuses on the struggles of White women but leaves out those from marginalized communities, particularly Black women.… (mere)
