    Radical Feminist believe it is a theoretical perspective that focuses on the theory of patriarchy as a system of power that organizes society into a complex relationships based on male supremacy that oppresses women. Radical feminism challenges and overthrows patriarchy by opposing gender roles and the oppression of women. Radical feminism targets the patriarchal root of inequality between men and women. However, their message extends to the inequality of men also.
    ...
    The Lesbian Avengers can be viewed as a radical feminist group because during the time lesbians were tired of just focusing on issues such as AIDS and abortion while their own problems were not being solved. They were tired of the ways society and the media viewed them. That being said, radical feminist go to the root of their problems which is what the Lesbian Avengers did. They wanted to help themselves and other lesbians, gays and bisexuals to be able to express themselves and feel accepted. “Organizationally, radical feminists form nonhierarchical, supportive, women-only spaces where women can think and act and create free of constant sexist put-downs, sexual harassment, and the threat of rape and violence. The heady possibilities of creating woman-oriented health care facilities, safe residences for battered women, counseling and legal services for survivors of rape, a woman’s culture, and a woman’s religion and ethics forge the bonds of sisterhood” (Lorber 142).
    The Lesbian Avengers felt that they were always being ignored, that they weren’t being heard the way they should be, "When a lesbian walks into a room of gay men, it's the same as when she walks into a room of heterosexual men ... You're listened to and then politely ignored" (Salholz). Radical feminist put in perspective that due to patriarchy women tend to be viewed at the “other” to the male norm which is why they feel women are oppressed and not taken serious. The Lesbian Avengers weren’t being heard so they set their own priorities and worked on the issues that were important to them.

    Radical feminism fights for the inequalities faced by both male and females alike. Radicals identify the patriarchal roots we face in inequality. Patrichary is a "social organization marked by the supremacy of the father in the clan or family, the legal dependence of wives and children, and the reckoning of descent and inheritance in the male line; broadly control by men of a disproportionately large share of power". (Merriam-Webster) It is important to note that radical feminists fight for the equality women deserve, while still fighting for the inequality men face also. They believe it is necessary to empower the idea of equality for all instead of the contrary. Women face oppression by male counterparts on a large scale. Radical feminists want to promote this awareness by their feminist organization movements such as the "Redstockings".

Building the phrase "Cattle Auction", the Redstockings movement called upon the idea that they were being shown off as a item or the trophy prize for men all over the country. (Redstocking) It is an interesting point to think about because of the nature of these shows and advertisement of women everywhere. It is important to recognize these ideas as real problems.

Redstockings feminist organization do not undermine these problems but in fact bring them to the forefront. They look into the Iraqi women freedom as compared to other gulf countries. By examining freedom standards and rights in other countries we can start to understand the true problems of inequality by comparing and contrasting. It makes for a fuller understanding, and this is what the Redstockings organization truly promotes.

    The Redstockings organization is a radical feminist movement formed in 1969, in San Francisco, California. These fierce women do not back down from sensitive issues, instead they attack them. They believe in pro-choice movements, gay/lesbian rights, demotion of prostitution/ sex industry. "Redstockings women would go on to champion and spread knowledge of vital women's liberation theory, slogans and actions that have become household words such as consciousness-raising, the personal is political, the pro-woman line, sisterhood is powerful, the politics of housework, the Miss America Protest, and "speakouts" that would break the taboos of silence around subjects like abortion." (Redstocking) Radical feminists believe that as long as these rights are undermined, there will be no real equality. Prostitution is blamed on the patriarchal system we live in. Men are viewed as opressors that view women as objects or as certain images. These images can be sexual and or demeaning to women as a weaker gender.
