As someone who's ignorant to feminist theory, this text was a helpful primer. Hooks' chronology of the changes within the movement were helpful as well. Most importantly it flows very well, its language is straight forward and Hooks makes the concepts easy to understand. There are some ways this text dates itself. Hooks' ideas about sex work, trans identity and gender more broadly place this text very firmly in the late 20th century.

“Class is much more than Marx's definition of relationship to the means of production. Class involved your behavior, your basic assumptions, how you are taught to behave, what you expect from yourself and from others, your concept of a future, how you understand problems and solve them, how you think, feel, act.” - quoted from Rita Mae Brown
