Read in August, 2009

Perhaps more than any other author, bell hooks has managed to reframe Feminism. Before hooks, what was meant by "Feminism" was "increased opportunity" for upperclass white women; thanks to hooks, Feminism has now included other voices, and more importantly reformulated Feminism to challenge masculine domination (does inclusion in the boardroom mean "equal opportunity," or does it just participate in centuries-old practices of domination and exploitation?). And plus she's a terrific writer. But not for the faint-hearted.
