Liberal Feminism holds that the oppression of women is the denial of their equal rights, representation, and access to opportunities. Liberal Feminism takes a gender-neutral/gender-blind approach and holds that all men and women are created equal and should be treated the same, and seeks to reform oppressive systems. Liberal Feminism focuses strongly on fixing women's exclusion from political power.

Radical Feminism, is, as its name implies, more radical than Liberal feminism. Radical Feminism carries the belief that "the personal is political" and sees that the oppression of women is caused by patriarchy, a system of male authority, strongly manifested in sexuality, personal relationships, and the family, and then carried over into the rest of the man-dominated world. As opposed to Liberal Feminism, Radical Feminism does not take a gender-blind/gender-neutral approach; Radical Feminism acknowledges that there are differences between men and women, and society should change to value those differences instead of devaluing the "feminine."

What is radical feminism?

Radical Feminism is the belief that women's oppression is caused by the patriarchy, which is a system of male authority that is especially manifested in sexuality, personal relationships, and the family, but that spills over into the rest of the male-dominated world. Radical Feminism holds that "the personal is political," and does not want women to be treated the same as men, but for their differences to be acknowledged, and at the same time, both equally valued. Radical feminism calls for revolution instead of reform, and wants to dismantle repressive institutions, instead of re-working them in an attempt to fix them. Radical feminism has been criticized as excluding other identities, and focusing only on women - asking black women to value their identity as a woman more than their identity as a person of color, for instance. Radical feminism also sometimes falls into transphobia, saying that transgendered women aren't really women.
