A potent and electrifying critique of today's feminist movement announcing a fresh new voice in black feminism

Today's feminist movement has a glaring blind spot, and paradoxically, it is women. Mainstream feminists rarely talk about meeting basic needs as a feminist issue, argues Mikki Kendall, but food insecurity, access to quality education, safe neighborhoods, a living

I got an ADC from Edelweiss and the publisher, for review.

This book is a series of essays on feminism and its many intersections, from Chicago writer (and veteran, and wife, and mom, and academic, and Twitter pugilist) Mikki Kendall.

Make no mistake about it, this is a serious, weighty feminist work. It's absolutely excellent, and should be required reading for white feminists especially. This is an opportunity for us to listen, and to do better.

I love Kendall's framing of allies and accomplices in the last essay. It's useful and important for white women to learn how to be on both the front lines of this fight and in the background when it's important and right.

Thanks to the publisher and the NetGalley for the digital ARC.
