    schema:description "The book that established hooks as one of international feminism's most challenging and influential voices has been updated with a new Preface by the author reflecting on the book's impact and development of her ideas since it was first published. Feminist Theory: From Margin to Center established bell hooks as one of international feminism's most challenging and influential voices. Now, South End Press makes this invaluable work available in an attractive edition with a new preface by hooks, reflecting on the book's impact and the development of her ideas since it was first published. In this beautifully written and carefully argued work, hooks maintains that mainstream feminism's reliance on white, middle-class, and professional spokeswomen obscures the involvement, leadership, and centrality of women of color and poor women in the movement for women's liberation. Feminism's goal of seeking credibility and acceptance on already existing ground -- rather than demanding the lasting and more fundamental transformation of society -- has shortchanged the movement, hooks argues."@en ;
