Educational Thoughts of Western Radical Feminism



Since the 1960s, radical feminism has gradually been an important faction of the western feminism. Influenced by the trend of western modern educational thought, radical feminism, as a branch of feminism educational thoughts, mainly embodies in the fact that it reveals the problems of the patriarchal system in education and the encounter of female teachers in the patriarchal system. It advocates the reform of school curriculum through personal reflection and consciousness promotion, and examines the definition of knowledge. Therefore, an objective and dialectical view of the western radical feminism educational thoughts can provide some useful reference for the current female education in China.
