All too often the focus of mainstream feminism is not on the basic survival for the many but on increasing privilege for the few. Meeting basic needs is a feminist issue. Food insecurity, the living wage, access to education, and medical care are feminist issues. The fight against racism, ableism, and transmisogyny are all feminist issues. How can feminists stand in solidarity as a movement without addressing these issues? Insightful, incendiary, and ultimately hopeful, Hood Feminism is both an irrefutable indictment of a movement in flux and also a clear-eyed assessment of how to save it.
