Read in January, 2012

Bell hooks, writing in the mid-eighties, discusses how second-wave feminism could reclaim its focus on social justice and become relevant to everyone. Picked this up at a library book sale and loved it. Hooks' prose style is crisp and direct and quietly passionate, occupying the space where popular and academic writing meets. It is not an introduction to feminism, but it's a great read for anyone wanting to consider more deeply the place of feminism in social justice movements now.
