2  Owes much to Weberianism.  Feminism identifies more than just economic inequality – Weberian ideas like status (men and women) and party (old boys networks), also very important

3  Liberal – gradual legal change to values and attitudes  Marxism – links patriarchy and capitalism in a symbiotic relationship  Radical – ideas of gender and gender roles of central importance

4  All feminisms reject Parson’s idea that gender inequality is functional for society as a whole  Women are seen as grossly and unfairly unequal in society – patriarchy only ‘functional’ for men

5  Liberal – gradual changes in the law can change attitudes and improve the status of women over time (JS Mill, Mary Wolstencroft)  Marxist – women can only be equal when capitalism is replaced by an egalitarian society (Catherine Hakim, Frederick Engels)  Radical – what is feminine is currently defined by men – women should separate to develop a positive culture of feminity (Greer) and break free of the biological function of childbirth (Firestone)

6  Pomos see inequality and indeed social classes as things from the ‘modern’ period. No longer relevant or meaningful (Lyotard)  No groups or societies share a common set of norms and values it is therefore meaningless to talk about inequalities.  Society is diffuse and atomised into individuals – individuals may fee unequal but to talk of the inequality of a group is meaningless
