Review Quotes

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)
