Editorial Reviews

Bust Magazine
...a universally modern feminist guide for the progressive generation....This book is essential reading for young girls who want to learn how to empower themselves, for their mothers and grandmothers who lived through the women's rights movements of the '60s and '70s—and for men of all ages.
Bell Hooks (Distinguished Professor of English at City College, City University of New York) once against demonstrates her exceptional ability as a cultural critic in Feminism Is For Everybody: Passionate Politics. Hooks writes with her usual and persuasive candor on a wide ranging spectrum of personal, national, and international contemporary issues arising from feminist politics and the continuing struggle to create an equalitarian, unbiased future against the cultural barriers raised by patriarchal, racist, and homophobic attitudes, policies, and practices. Feminism Is For Everybody is still another important, thought-provoking, and appreciated contribution by Bell Hooks to feminist studies.
From the Publisher
Praise for Feminism Is for Everybody:

"bell hooks has always written in a very readable style, eschewing footnotes because people in her hometown told her they were put off by books with footnotes. This time, she set out to write a book that explains feminism, particularly for a mainstream audience….certainly she has once again made the point that feminists need to try to reach women of all races and classes." —Carol Anne Douglas, Off Our Backs (2001)
