Hood Feminism by Mikki Kendall

This book provides a critical examination of mainstream feminism, highlighting how it often overlooks the needs and issues of marginalized women, particularly women of color and those from low-income communities. The author argues that feminism must address a wide range of basic survival issues such as food insecurity, access to quality education, safe neighborhoods, and healthcare that disproportionately affect marginalized populations. By sharing personal experiences and examining the intersection of race, class, and gender, the book calls for a more inclusive and intersectional feminist movement that advocates for the rights and needs of all women, not just a privileged few.
