In this classic study, cultural critic bell hooks examines how black women, from the seventeenth century to the present day, were and are oppressed by both white men and black men and by white women. Illustrating her analysis with moving personal accounts, Ain't I a Woman is deeply critical of the racism inherent in the thought of many middle-class white feminists who have failed to address issues of race and class. While acknowledging the conflict of loyalty to race or sex is still a dilemma, hooks challenges the view that race and gender are two separate phenomena, insisting that the struggles to end racism and sexism are inextricably intertwined.

Seller:
Grand Eagle Retail
(Wilmington, DE, U.S.A.)

Book Description Paperback. Condition: new. Paperback. A study of the impact of sexism on black women during slavery, the historic devaluation of black womanhood, sexism among black men, racism within the women's movement and the black woman's involvement with feminism. Hooks refutes the antifeminist claim that black women have no need for an autonomous women's movement. She pushes feminist dialogue to new limits by claiming that all progressive struggles are significant only when they take place within a broadly defined feminist movement which takes as its starting point the immutable facts of race, class and gender. A provocative and inspiring book on the culture and politics of black women's rights Shipping may be from multiple locations in the US or from the UK, depending on stock availability.
