bell hooks is a feminist, professor, and activist. In 2000, she published “Feminism is for Everybody”. Key to her politics and feminist philosophy is that the overarching “enemy”/structure to dismantle is the “white suprmacist capitalist patriarchy”. She intentionally does not capitalize her name so that the main focus of her writing is never her name, but rather, the content of her writings/speeches.
