it is a short book that was easy to understand, and gave me a better understanding of what the feminist movement is really about

Great little introductory book to feminism or a reference and a quick read. If you've ever wondered or just wanted to clear some things up for yourself or for someone else, YES! this book is for you :-)

When people hear the word 'feminism,' they automatically think of radical left-wing 'manly women.' However, bell hooks uses Feminism is for Everybody to dispel those notions and misconceptions, and to redefine feminism. Hooks' African-American background gives the book a humorous, 'momma-esque' feel, while maintaining a serious tone.

hooks writes with an academic voice, no doubt, but this is one of her most accessible (and relevant) works

This book is great for introducing someone to feminism and particularly how racism plays a part in the "mainstream" movement, which is Bell Hooks' intent. For anyone with more then a beginning understanding of feminism/womanism it's only a repetition of key points. I've lent this book to a few friends to get a better understanding of what the movement is about (or should be) being that it's very short and to the point.

To anyone who feels that people who identify as a man have nothing to gain from the empowerment of women, this book is for you!
