Reviews

Praise for the book:

"Ain't I a Woman is one of the most interesting, lucid books dealing with the subject of Feminism. The book can be recommended wholeheartedly to anyone who is interested in black history, in women's history, or in that much-overlooked connection between the two." --Maria K. Mootry Ikerionwu, Phylon (1983)

"...an absorbing delineation of the American black woman's mark(s) of oppression at the hands of racist, misogynist, imperialist, capitalist patriarchy....Feminists must read this book..." --Cheryl Clarke, Off Our Backs (1982)

"Since the publication of Ain't I A Woman in 1981, bell hooks has become one of the United States' most acute cultural critics. Writing from a clearly stated position as an African American woman, hooks's early work helped re-map feminist theory in the United States with her consistent analysis of the interrelationships of race, gender and class in contemporary cultural life." --Sally Keenan, Journal of American Studies (1995)
