Interesting perspective, a bit long winded though.

This book did a great job of opening my eyes to the true motivates of the feminist movement, as well as what black women dealt with to be included in a group that did not want to include them. I definitely learned a lot. However, the book felt like a fiction book in some parts, due to the fact that it sounded like someone telling a story rather than citing facts. I still recommend this book though.
