In the 60’s and 70’s radical feminism theory flourished, now radical feminism is marginal in libraries and almost nonexistent in academia, being replaced by patriarchy-friendly political and philosophical so-called feminist theories.
We have to mention some important radical feminist authors, who built the foundation of this current.
Radical feminist authors:
- Kate Millet
- Ti-Grace Atkinson
- Susan Brownmiller
- Phyllis Chester
- Corrine Grad Coleman
- Mary Daly
- Andrea Dworkin
- Shulamith Firestone
- Germaine Greer
- Carol Hanisch
- Jill Johnston
- Catherine MacKinnon
- Robin Morgan
- Ellen Willis
- Monique Wittig
- Sheila Geoffreys
- Julie Bindel
and many others.
- An interesting radical feminist author, with no relation to academia, is Bev Jo. We regret we have few resources about the radical feminist who write in other languages than English (for example Monique Wittig was French). But we are sure they exist and references about them will be guested by this site.
