bell hooks (born Gloria Jean Watkins on September 25, 1952) is an
American intellectual, feminist, and social activist. hooks focuses
on the interconnectivity of race, class, and gender and their ability
to produce and perpetuate systems of oppression and domination.

plus sentence-internal occurrences of "bell hooks".

The spelling in the url is an artifact of the Wikimedia [sic] software. All
page names that begin with a letter are coerced to initial-capital. Case is
distinctive after the first character.
