Radical Feminism

  • Radical feminists
    • Argue that liberal feminism is both too timid and unlikely ever to achieve true equality for womankind
    • Family is an institution which forms the foundation of a sexist and unequal society
    • Women are fundamentally repressed by the institutional expectations of a woman as a wife, mother and homemaker
    • Traditional nuclear family is a tool with which women can be contained and controlled
    • They address how the media tends to objectify women as sex objects in a way that isn't true for men
    • In order for true equality to be achieved revolutionary change in society's structures and perspectives is required
