Review: Feminist Theory: From Margin to Center

Reseña de usuario  - Noah - Goodreads

This woman thinks in such a staggering intelligent and accessible way that it's goddamned awe-inducing. It's cliche to say a book changed how you see the world, but more than that, this book gave me a new vocabulary with which to speak to the world and myself. Leer reseña completa

Review: Feminist Theory: From Margin to Center

Reseña de usuario  - Genelle Denzin - Goodreads

This book really helped me see the complex relationship between sexism and racism. And my place as not only someone who suffers oppression as a woman, but also as a white woman, someone who benefits from the racist oppression of others and therefore causes suffering in others.

Sobre el autor (1984)

Bell Hooks was born Gloria Watkins on September 25, 1952. She grew up in a small Southern community that gave her a sense of belonging as well as a sense of racial separation. She has degrees from Stanford University, the University of Wisconsin, and the University of California at Santa Cruz. She has served as a noted activist and social critic and has taught at numerous colleges. Hooks uses her great-grandmother's name to write under as a tribute to her ancestors. Hooks writes daring and controversial works that explore African-American female identities. In works such as Ain't I a Woman: Black Women and Feminism and Talking Back: Thinking Feminist, Thinking Black, she points out how feminism works for and against black women. Oppressed since slavery, black women must overcome the dual odds of race and gender discrimination to come to terms with equality and self-worth.
