WGS201 (14218) Polly-Anna West Module 7: Short Answer 10/14/18 Eastern Kentucky University Module 7 Short Answer 1. What is the link between patriarchy and radical feminism? Patriarchy is a form of society where the men hold most of the power and the women are highly excluded from it. Within this form of society, feminists’ movement aim to fight for the rights of women and thus radical feminism will result. Thus patriarchy is directly linked with radical feminism. With increase in patriarchal lines, there will be resistance from female activists and thus radical feminism will erupt. Patriarchy tends to promote and value highly the male gender. This leads to the power in government or even the smallest unit in society, such as the family, rests within the hands of males. This promotes resistance from female activists and thus radical feminism will erupt. If patriarchy increases so will radical feminism. Therefore, patriarchy is directly linked with radical feminism and in my eyes, always will.
