i was thinking maybe "feminism is for everybody" by bell hooks.


That's the exact book I thought of when I saw your post. Very accessible, not intimidatingly *thick*, and hooks is so balanced.

does anyone have any recommendations?

i have a female friend, 22, who has never really been introduced to the basic concepts of feminism. she's an amazing girl, and i'd love to give her a book that's an easy introduction. nothing overly intellectual, but still smart and interesting to music obsessed girl from the south who's never really thought about sexism.

i was thinking maybe "feminism is for everybody" by bell hooks. thoughts?


(p.s. i'm new so sorry if this has come up. i search past posts but didn't find anything.)
