Overview


Feminist Theory: From Margin to Center established bell hooks as one of feminism's most vital and influential voices. A new preface by the author introduces the second edition of this essential classic to a new generation of feminist readers, while reminding seasoned activists of the need for continual, critical reflection.

This carefully argued and powerfully inspirational work is a comprehensive examination of the core issues of sexual politics, including political solidarity among women, men as partners in struggle, and the feminist movement to end violence. Always engaging and frequently provocative, hooks combines an accessible style with critical insight to offer a vision of feminism rooted in compassion, respect, and integrity.

This book was amazing! I had to read it for a Feminist Theory class, and honestly I was dreading it...but much to my surprise it turned out to be a great read. I couldn't put it down. I learned a lot about ethnic women and the feminist movement. I've reread it several time now.
