What we're about

We question prostitution, pornography, the cosmetics industry, femininity and gender roles. We don't believe gender is innate but a hierarchy where women as a group are placed below men as a group. Neither do we believe in "choice feminism" which ignores that choices don't happen in a vacuum but are subject to social pressure and sanctions. We don't support "sex positive" feminism which doesn't look at how women are forced into many sexual acts and practices.

This group is for traditional feminism/second wave feminist thought. If you tire of third wave feminism this is the place for you.

This is for women (only) of all ages and backgrounds.
