Praise for Feminism Is for Everybody: "bell hooks has always written in a very readable style, eschewing footnotes because people in her hometown told her they were put off by books with footnotes. This time, she set out to write a book that explains feminism, particularly for a mainstream audience...certainly she has once again made the point that feminists need to try to reach women of all races and classes." -Carol Anne Douglas, Off Our Backs (2001) -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch.


bell hooks is the internationally renowned author of many influential books on politics of race, gender, class and culture. This, her latest book, is a basic guide to feminism, a passionate argument that lends immediacy to the traditional concerns of feminist theory by rooting them in everyday lived experience. Designed to be read by men and women alike, "Feminism is for Everybody" provides a primer to the question "what is feminism?", offering an accessible and concise argument for the enduring importance of the feminist movement today. hooks argues that feminism is simply about seeking an end to sexism, sexist exploitation and oppression. Providing a critical evaluation of the successes and failures of the feminist movement, she looks at a wide variety of topics including reproductive rights, sexual violence, race, class and work. hooks encourages us to look at feminism in a new light, to demand alternatives to patriarchal, racist and homophobic culture, and to seek out a different future. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch.

Format: Taschenbuch
Der Titel dieses Buches ist Programm, denn tatsächlich geht es hier um die Entwicklung einer feministischen Theorie, die sich nicht am Werdegang weißer, bürgerlicher Frauen orientiert. Damit liefert dieses Buch den nächsten Schritt in Richtung einer feministischen Politik, den in Deutschland dank dem "lila Latzhosen"-Vorurteil niemand so recht gehen mag.
Selbst für Leute, die nicht scharf darauf sind, Bücher in englisch zu lesen, ist dieses kurze Büchlein durchaus verständlich, auch wenn man sich den Unterschied zwischen men-defined und women-defined women erst nach einem US-Aufenthalt vollends verdeutlichen kann.

This Book is For Everybody 12. Dezember 2002
Von K. Smith - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
This is the best "primer" to feminism that I've ever read. It's a great read for people who know nothing about feminism or who are only familiar with mainstream society's myths about feminism, because it offers a concise and easy to understand history of the movement. hooks also clears up misunderstanding on the definitions of the terms feminist and feminism. She touches on problems within the movement and where we're at now. I also think this is an excellent book for seasoned feminists to have on hand. For one thing, you can find the quotes and passages you're looking for with ease...and it also helps to have read a book that you should be suggesting to those new to feminism.
Finally, I disagree with the reviewer who said this book is only for the "fringe" because hooks points out "our feminist pioneers [were] privileged, educated white women." Um...THEY WERE for the most part. If you're looking for a whitewashed version of the history of feminism then this book isn't for you. Like the feminist movement itself, this book cannot address sex and gender without also addressing race and class. Also, nowhere in the book does hooks imply that housewives are excluded from feminism. The book actually touches on the fact that most of the work done by women (including especially unpaid domestic labor) is still unpaid and undervalued in this society.
The amazing thing about this book is that hooks is able to compress so much information into such an easy and interesting read. You won't put it down except maybe to get your hi-liter.

Move to this 15. Oktober 2000
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Bell hooks's book is an excellent introduction to the study of feminist politics. With clear and concise language, she revisits the beginnings of the movement, and tells us where it is now. She also succintly explains why feminism is not anti-male, anti-sex, or anti-family, but rather feminism is the struggle against rigid sexism in patriarchal cultures. Despite its plague of editorial errors, the book is highly recommended for the non-academic language and for the encouraging message hooks offers us.

Not really saying anything new 30. November 2001
Von mp541 - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
I have always admired and respected the formidable intelligence of bell hooks. I have read her books since Ain't I A Woman when I was still a sophomore in college. While I don't agree with everything she says I feel her vision is quite insightful, but Feminism for Everybody is just recycled rhetoric, which has been a pattern of her books as of late. I feel this book is like every other book she has done, saying the same old things without any new insight or enlightenment. The one thing I notice is that for all her suggestions she never has a concise game plan on how to solve things based on her theory, although when she does criticism she is the first to write of other authors who don't share any type of solutions based on their rhetoric.
This book is good for people who are ignorant and have a fear about feminism. It is a good introductory book, but if you're a seasoned reader, or activist I suggest you move on to something more substantial.

bell hooks rocks- and so does her book 17. September 2001
Von Book Reader - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Feminism is for Everybody is a great book for third wave generation feminists. Most young feminists of today don't know the history of feminism that bell hooks recounts in this book. bell hooks explains how the current feminist movement lacks a strong sense of sisterhood, and one reason for that is our lack of participation in consciousness raising groups. We need safe, sacred space in which to work out our internalized sexism. We need to learn about feminism outside of the classroom as well as inside it. We need to come together across the lines of race, class, and education, and demand a revolution.
hooks also dicusses some of the differences between "reform" feminism and "revolutionary" feminism, and why knowing about the distinction is so important. That helped me to understand one reason why today's feminism seems to exclude women of color and poor women so much.
I highly recommend hooks' book for women (and men) who are new to feminism and to those who've been involved in the movement for a while. I think she has some excellent and important things to teach us about our movement and where it needs to go.

Feminism is for Everybody (Who Agrees With Me) 4. April 2001
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Ms. hooks stated goal of writing an accessible feminist primer for those outside the movement has partially been achieved. The book covers a great deal of territory for such a small volume; and it does so with (largely) accessible language (although I am not sure that continued use of such words as "dialectic" or phrases like "white capitalist male patriarchal heterosexist hegemony" are really all that accessible to outsiders to the movement). Many chapters are quite excellent and contain a thoughtful and succinct analysis of where feminism has been, is now, and needs to go.
There are some flaws within the work, however:
1. The focus on radical feminism as the "true feminism" and the "one path to salvation" may be tiresome for those feminists who are not in agreement with those beliefs or goals. 2. The continual dismissal of "reformist feminists" as "allies of patriarchy" could be considered insulting. 3. As a Canadian, the American paternalism wore a little thin, especially since, 4. She makes the common mistake of saying that feminism must end in creating an absolutely egalitarian society along sex, gender, class and race lines--and that anything that aims only to repair inequities between men and women is not "real" feminism (and then falls into the trap of American paternalism, which could be considered rather hypocritical). For instance, in the chapter on "global feminism," feminism all around the world is reduced to two forms: American and Third-World. I can only suppose that she believes that other Western countries can't really be distinguished from America.
