Feminist Theory : From Margin to Center, Paperback

Feminist Theory : From Margin to Center Paperback



Feminist Theory established bell hooks as one of international feminism's most challenging and influential voices.

This edition includes a new preface by the author, reflecting on the book's impact and the development of her ideas since it was first published.

In this beautifully written and carefully argued work, hooks maintains that mainstream feminism's reliance on white, middle-class, and professional spokeswomen obscures the involvement, leadership, and centrality of women of colour and poor women in the movement for women's liberation.

Hooks argues that feminism's goal of seeking credibility and acceptance on already existing ground - rather than demanding the lasting and more fundamental transformation of society - has shortchanged the movement.

A sweeping examination of the core issues of sexual politics, Feminist Theory argues that contemporary feminists must acknowledge the full complexity and diversity of women's experience to create a mass movement to end women's oppression.
