“As all advocates of feminist politics know, most people do not
understand sexism, or if they do, they think it is not a problem.
Masses of people think that feminism is always and only about
women seeking to be equal to men. And a huge majority of these
folks think feminism is anti-male. Their misunderstanding of feminist
politics reflects the reality that most folks learn about feminism
from patriarchal mass media.”

This week we’re re-reading the first four chapters of Feminism is for Everybody by bell hooks (pages 1-24).
