Liberal Feminism

View mindmap
  • Liberal Feminism
    • Say that women's inequality arises from factors like sexist stereotyping, gender role socialisation and sex discrimination
      • These factors generate a lack of opportunities for women which keeps them in lower pain and lower status occupations
    • Liberal feminists say that gender equality can be achieved through legal, economic and social reform that would enable women to take full part in existing society
    • Evaluation
      • Strengths
        • Plenty of evidence to suggest that this is a successful branch of feminism as acts have been passed to encourage equality e:g The Equal Pay Act
      • Weaknesses
        • Other feminists, such as radical feminists, would argue that these movements are not effective enough or are too optimistic
