Statement from International Radical Feminists

37 radical feminists from 5 countries issued a statement on August 12, 2013 noting with alarm how “gender studies” have marginalised radical feminist critiques of gender.

“We do not view traditional sex/gender roles as natural or permanent. In fact, criticizing these “roles” is valid and necessary for women’s liberation. Radical feminist analysis and activism focus on unequal power relations between men and women under male supremacy, with real, material benefits going to the oppressor group (men) at the expense of the oppressed group (women).”

UPDATE: The Pandagon website removed part of the statement because of men claiming it oppressed them
