Feminist Theory: From Margin to Center
1st Edition, 1989
South End Press
Written in response to the exclusionary structure of the contemporary feminist movement in the 1980s, in Feminist Theory: From Margin to Center bell hooks carefully argues with the conviction that for it to have a revolutionary, transformative impact on society, feminism must become a mass based political movement. hooks proposes a new direction towards wholeness for feminist theory and practice; a broader analysis to encompass a variety of human experiences, not only those of privileged white women living at the ‘centre’, but to also consider the perspectives of black Americans she describes as living at the ‘margin’. This sixth printing of the first edition includes a preface by the author reflecting on her ideas since the book was first published in 1984.
