Radical Feminist Philosophy

That men’s oppression of women was the first class division. That all other oppressions are modeled on, or caused by, this central gendered heirarchy. That men’s oppression of women is the primary way in which all oppression is legitimised. 

That male supremacy and patriarchal ideology is the central governing system of today’s global politics, economics, religious and social order. 

That global capitalism, neo-liberal economics and all systems of government in all nations are male created, male controlled, and male fucked up. That these institutions are used to foster and increase male supremacy.

That mankind is destroying the world with their ever-increasing obsession with destructive technologies and desire for economic gain, at the expense of women, the earth and all peoples. That womankind is resisting and have always resisted on thousands of different levels, in millions of different ways. 

That all borders and nations are male territorial pissings. That as Radical Feminists and as women, our country is the world.

That as activists and as women we must centre Radical Feminist ethics into the core of our political and personal lives.  

That the earth is a living being to whom we owe our existence. That we cannot live without her. That all life is sacred; including the life of so called ‘lesser’ species.  

That we live in a phallocratic rapist society. That pornography, prostitution and sado-masochistic sex are not evidence of women’s sexual liberation, but ultimate proof of our sexual slavery.  

That the preachings/teachings/practices of planetary patriarchy are profoundly necrophilic. That the creation of a profoundly biophillic global sisterhood is more necessary now, than ever.

  1. Hello, fellow Aussies. I just discovered your site and it’s an utter blessing. I wish I could say more but I am deeply moved by your words of truth, and grateful to the point of being speechless, which is in itself an amazing feat, because usually I can talk underwater with a mouth full of marbles :) Rock on, sisters.

  2. Welcome Ariane! Thank you so much for your encouragement…BTW, we’re always looking for submissions, if you have something creative we’d love to hear from you (hint, hint).

  3. I’m loving this blog, it’s excellent. I don’t have much more than that to say! :)

  4. This is really great!! Didn’t think a site like this existed and so glad it does.

  5. hello sisters, very beautifull libel, i’m a person in the feminist coletive’s from my city (brazilian) i’m using the e-mail but i do not represent the view of all the girls on it. I personally try to bring some of the radical feminism spirit into my feminist activities and world view. I guess all feminism, even queer, owes radical feminism despite there’s a wave to call it ‘unfashion’., however there’s some good work going on. You were into the autonomous feminist gathering this year? Keep moving!

    in sisterhood.

  6. Wow! Wow! great philosophy!

    “That we live in a phallocratic rapist society. That pornography, prostitution and sado-masochistic sex are not evidence of women’s sexual liberation, but ultimate proof of our sexual slavery.”

    How I wish those women who consider sex work as empowering read and understood this quote!
