Feminist Perspective

Feminist Perspective

The feminist perspective is not confined [unclear: ly] to women's issues. All issues are [unclear: niniit] issues, and all can be seen from [unclear: the] feminist perspective.

She defined the three areas in which [unclear: Tiinists] work: consciousness raising — [unclear: the] must work for "women identified wo[unclear: men]", "women defined as women, for [unclear: men], with women" alternatives; [unclear: femist] collective businesses; lesbian communitites and alternative women's collectives; and reform of the system. Attempts to change the system she saw as the hardest as women were finding themselves now in the position of having to fight to defend what they had previously thought established: like the women's right to choose, the equal rights amendment and the right to determine your own sexuality.

The feminist perspective can not be a passive one but must be continually active.
