If Hood Feminism is a searing indictment of mainstream feminism, it is also an invitation. For every case in which Kendall highlights problematic practices, she offers guidance for how we can all do better. In recognizing hunger as a feminist issue, she encourages us to "stop acting like food insecurity is a sin or a shame for an individual and treat it rightfully as an indictment of our society." She urges people to reexamine the language they use in the political sphere, noting that "when we frame the working class as only being white people in rural areas, when we talk about the economic anxieties of that group as justification for their votes in 2016 and 2017, we ignore the very real harm done not only to inner-city communities of color, but to all communities of color here and abroad."
