Feminism

“The core of feminism is the belief that women are subordinated to men in Western culture. Feminism seeks to liberate women from this subordination and to reconstruct society in such a way that patriarchy is eliminated and a culture created that is fully inclusive of women’s desires and purposes. There are many different kinds of feminist theory but they all have these goals in common.” (Edgar and Sedgwick 124).
