She Proclaims

Our Declaration of Independence from a Man's World

By Jennifer Palmieri
Narrated by: Jennifer Palmieri
Length: 3 hours 17 minutes

She Proclaims

She Proclaims: Our Declaration of Independence from a Man's World by Jennifer Palmieri blew me away. Palmieri's manifesto outlines that our society was built by and for men and that we must dismantle and rebuild a world that allows for mutual empowerment benefiting everyone. Inspiring and invigorating, Palmieri celebrates the women's moment's accomplishments and history through personal reflections and stories of inspirational female leaders. This is not a proclamation against men but rather a declaration of the undeniable power women have harnessed all along. This is a declaration of men and women are created equal, and therefore 'we must proclaim our own freedom and our worth.'”

Hood Feminism

Notes from the Women that a Movement Forgot

By Mikki Kendall
Narrated by: Mikki Kendall
Length: 6 hours 57 minutes

Hood Feminism

Hood Feminism touches on many subjects that mainstream feminists may not think of as feminist issues. Issues like food and housing insecurity, parenting, and disability rights, among others. Mikki Kendall calls out mainstream feminism as existing only for the advancement of white women, to the detriment of women of color. Some of my biggest takeaways were that white women are reliant on upholding the patriarchy for their protection—although this is counterintuitive—and that the "strong," "powerful" Black woman is a harmful stereotype that denies such women the care and rest that they deserve. White liberal allies, beware of performative activism. Take notes while you listen to this book, step up to become angry accomplice intersectional feminists, and step aside to allow the voices of marginalized women to be heard.”
