Hi, I've recently started working for Sociology and there's something I can't get my head around. I understand the concept of Marxist feminism, but don't understand Liberal or Radical feminism - what do the terms mean? Liberal and Radical? How do they relate to feminism too?

Very confusing for me :-/
Also the terms Liberal and Radical altogether are very confusing... If anyone could help with defining them for a sociological incompetent :P

thanks in advance

Liberals believe that the position of women is getting better and they're quite satisfied with the changes.

Radicals in general just put all the blame on men and the patriarchy, seeing the family as part of the patriarchal system too. They aren't satisfied and believe that women are still very opressed.
