Review of 'Feminism Is for Everybody' on 'Goodreads'

4 stars

A great introduction to feminism and why we all need it. Loved the definition Bell Hooks gives “Feminism is a movement to end sexism, sexist exploitation, and oppression.”
She very clearly and succinctly explains why feminism benefits women, men and children, liberating us from the weight of patriarchy and the shackles of a rigid system.
I don't give it 5 stars because it feels a bit dated in that it makes no mention of gender queer and transgender people. But otherwise it is an awesome book, authentic, clear and simple to read.
