The Will To Change

December 3, 2017

" 'The Will to Change: Men, Masculinity, and Love' is about our need to live in a world where women and men can belong together. Looking at the reasons patriarchy has maintained its power over men in their lives, I urge us to reclaim feminism for men, showing why feminist thinking and practice are the only way we can truly address the crisis of masculinity today… men cannot change if there are no blueprints for change. Men cannot love if they are not taught the art of loving. It is not true that men are unwilling to change. It is true that many men are afraid to change. It is true that masses of men have not even begun to look at the ways it patriarchy keep them from knowing themselves, from being in touch with their feelings, from loving. To know love, men must be able to let go the world to dominate. They must be able to choose life over death. They must be willing to change." -bell hooks β–«οΈπŸŒ‘πŸŒ’πŸŒ“πŸŒ”πŸŒ•πŸŒ–πŸŒ—πŸŒ˜πŸŒ‘ ▫️ #usedbooks #usedbookstore #virginiaisforbooklovers #norfolk #norfolkva #wildcardbooksandarts #visitnorfolkva #virginia #HRVA #hamptonroadsvirginia #loveva #nfk #norfolkvirginia #hamptonroads #hamptonroadsvirginia #757 #visitnorfolkva #757business #shoplocal #bellhooks #bellhooksquotes #bellhookswisdom #intersectionalfeminism #feminism #feministart #feministwriters

MOTHER JOURNEYS

May 12, 2017

“Our intention is to honor the voice of the #feminist #mother , the mother who criticizes the status quo and who does not want to turn her children into new little patriarchal replicants.”
