Feminism is for Everybody

'Simply put, feminism is a movement to end sexism, sexist exploitation, and oppression.'

So begins Feminism is for Everybody, a short, accessible introduction to feminist theory by one of its liveliest and most influential practitioners. Designed to be read by all genders, this book provides both a primer to the question 'what is feminism?' and an argument for the enduring importance of the feminist movement today.

Beginning with a broad survey of feminism's most important themes and concerns, bell hooks demystifies contentious concepts and turns apparent ideology into common sense. Providing a critical evaluation of the successes and failures of contemporary feminism, she looks at a wide variety of topics including reproductive rights, sexual violence, race, class and work.

Hooks encourages us to demand alternatives to patriarchal, racist and homophobic culture and thereby to seek out a different future.
