“We’re not supporting characters in feminism, and we can’t afford to wait for equality to trickle down to us eventually,” Mikki Kendall writes in Hood Feminism: Notes From the Women That a Movement Forgot, a piercing treatise that forces the mainstream feminist movement to examine its own privilege and whiteness. With poise and clarity, Kendall lays out the case for why feminists need to fight not just for career advancement but also for basic needs and issues that often plague women of color, including food security, educational access, a living wage and safety from gun violence. In expertly tying the racial justice and feminist movements together, Kendall’s is one of the most important books of the current moment.
