Liberal Feminism -- Solutions to Gender Inequality.
Changes, for Liberal Feminists, can take place within the existing structure. The creation of equal opportunities thus is the main aim, e.g. the Sex Discrimination Act and the Equal Pay Act. All the major barriers to gender equality, therefore, according to them, have been broken down over the last century. Since women now have equal opportunities to enter the workforce and politics, we have effectively achieved legal gender equality in the many countries and there is very little else that needs to be done.
One relatively minor changes need to be made to advance gender equality further, such as more flexible working hours for mothers, challenging gender stereotypes in subject choice, and in children's books.
Criticism of the Liberal Feminism is that it is ethnocentric. Meaning, it only reflects the experience of white, middle class women.
