TERMS TO KNOW
  • Liberal Feminism

    Argues that women are able to show their equality with men through individual pursuits. The basic inequalities between men and women, according to liberal feminists, are thought to be found in the divide between public and private.

  • Socialist Feminism

    The branch of feminist theory that argues that the inequality and exploitation of women is inextricably linked with the system of capitalist production (i.e. capitalism structures inequality).

  • Radical Feminism

    A fringe form of feminist theory that argues that patriarchy is so entrenched that the socially constructed category of "gender" needs to be eliminated entirely by separating reproduction from women's bodies.
