Here’s a summary of the book:
Feminist Theory: From Margin to CenterĀ established bell hooks as one of feminism’s most vital and influential voices. A new preface by the author introduces the second edition of this essential classic to a new generation of feminist readers, while reminding seasoned activists of the need for continual, critical reflection.
This carefully argued and powerfully inspirational work is a comprehensive examination of the core issues of sexual politics, including political solidarity among women, men as partners in struggle, and the feminist movement to end violence. Always engaging and frequently provocative, hooks combines an accessible style with critical insight to offer a vision of feminism rooted in compassion, respect, and integrity.

You can find this book at a Chicago Public Library, online, or at many book stores. Pick it up and meet us next month.

We’ll look forward to seeing you!
