Praise For Feminist Theory

a most extraordinary book... Her courage and insight are really phenomenal. And hooks emphasizes that we always need to consider class and race when we discuss gender, She has the courage of her convictions and such emotional and intellectual autonomy. And she was so young32when she wrote it. It’s just remarkable.” — O Magazine Ashley Judd, Books That Made a Difference”
