Abstract

The American radical feminist movement (1967-1975) exhibited in its theory a tension between two opposing ideas. Radical feminists believed men and women were similar and equal by nature,and they challenged social institutions which promoted differences between the sexes. They also created a movement for women only.The tension between gender similarity and sisterhood characterizes radical feminist theory and caused the end of the movement.
