Reading this book immediately following hooks first book Ain t I a Woman Black Women and Feminism reveals how much a writer and theorist can develop in just a few years Where Ain t I a Woman suffered because of underdeveloped points and undertheorized intersections of class with race and gender Feminist Theory from Margin to Center shines Hooks here works to re define feminism in a way that opens up the movement to women and men of all race and class backgrounds and allows feminism to work for than the bourgeois white women who had previously been perceived as the face of the movement In developing this stance hooks takes on several key myths about feminism and about gender including the idea that women are naturally superior caring and nurturing than men She argues that this idea is counterproductive and simply untrue stating instead that we who are concerned about feminism and militarism must insist that women even those who are bearers of children are not inherently non violent or life affirming Many women who mother either as single parents or in camaraderie with husbands have taught male children to see fighting and other forms of violent aggression as acceptable modes of communication modes that are valued than loving or caring interaction 128 Further since these gender roles are not fully cemented by nature she calls into uestion the glorification of motherhood as well providing two distinct alternatives Rather than denigrating motherhood the easy alternative for some to glorifying it she proposes that we do not praise motherhood as the only true way to parent children Instead she says we should teach men ideally from childhood on that fatherhood has the same meaning and significance as motherhood 137 She continues saying Women and men must define the work of fathering and mothering in the same way if males and females are to accept eual responsibility in parenting 137 She goes beyond the nuclear family structure however to consider the benefits of communal parenting for both the children the parents and the rest of the community involved in raising the children As interesting as I find these points they are not the the most compelling part of this book For me that is found in hooks two central points the first is her clear distinction between identity politics and praxis and the second is her focus on struggle as a fundamental part of feminist political action Hooks repeatedly insists that one s identity as a feminist is not at all the same thing as engaging in feminist action writing that often emphasis on identity and lifestyle is appealing because it creates a false sense that one is engaged in praxis 28 To counter this false sense she proposes a new way of conceiving one s position in the feminist movement that is based on action rather than identityTo emphasize that engagement with feminist struggle as political commitment we could avoid using the phrase I am a feminist a linguistic structure designed to refer to some personal aspect of identity and self definition and could state I advocate feminism 29While I see potential problems with this linguistic shift although it does emphasize action instead of personal identity it also risks feeling as if one is distancing oneself from the movement I don t belong to it but I support it this is a fascinating idea that is worth considering Even valuable than her suggestions regarding description and linguistic affiliation are her comments and suggestions regarding concrete action One concrete action that she suggests is a focus on literacy In order to make sure that feminist literature and ideas are able to reach those in need of them the feminist movement must make sure that those people are able to read them She advocates support of literacy programs as well as a reconsideration of the way that feminist theory is written Many feminist theorists do not even intend their ideas to reach a mass public and conseuently we must take some responsibility for the superficial and perverted versions of feminist ideas that end up in the public imagination via tv for example 108This is an idea that I wish feminist theorists would take to heart Hooks goes on to acknowledge the pressures of the field and the publishing industry on academics who write feminist theory but does not allow that acknowledgement to undermine her argument writing that the ability to translate ideas to an audience that varies in age sex ethnicity degree of literacy is a skill feminist educators need to develop 111 Although I d rather see all feminist theory written in a way that is understandable to than a handful of experts at the very least those ideas should be translatable to laypersons If the ideas aren t translatable perhaps they are not worth the effort perhaps the effort would be better spent making a real difference in the real world On a selfish note I have to say that I can t help but think that if feminist theorists had taken up hooks challenge my feminist theory reading list would be a helluva lot easier to get throughHooks conclusion alone is worth the price of admission She concludes by re affirming the focus of feminism and establishing the necessity of struggleOur emphasis must be on cultural transformation destroying dualism eradicating systems of domination Our feminist revolution here can be aided by the example of liberation struggles led by oppressed peoples globally who resist formidable powers The formation of an oppositional world view is necessary for feminist struggle This means that the world we have most intimately known the world in which we feel safe even if such feelings are based on illusions must be radically changed Perhaps it is the knowledge that everyone must change not just those we label enemies or oppressors that has so far served to check our revolutionary impulses Those revolutionary impulses must freely inform our theory and practice if feminist movement to end oppression is to progress if we are to transform our present reality 163This is a view of feminism that not everyone will agree with but those who truly do want to see men and women of all races classes and ages able to be the best humans they can be will find this a satisfying vision of the world to work toward and a challenge worth taking up

I just finished this book and I found it challenging in the sense that it challenges some generally accepted notions and very thoughtful and well written She argues that mainstream feminism which has been dominated by middle and upper class white women has not opened its doors adeuately to non white and working class women she argues that part of the reason the movement has failed is because there has been an internalization of the sexist oppression paradigm by the leaders of the feminist movement which manifests itself in the failure to recognize or address racism and classism in the movement She says the movement definitely needs to be democratic rather than focus on advancing careers of white middle and upper class women the focus needs to be on the poorer non white women whose position in society has become worselower she also argues that its absolutely essential to find ways to involve progressive men to advocate for feminism with other men who benefit from the patriachal hierarchy As long as men are seen as the enemy it will be impossible for the movement to grow
