The paper explores feminist political activism in the late sixties until the eighties and looks at both the liberal and radical women's movements. The paper then discusses the decline of feminist movements and the proliferation of feminist activism in many areas. The paper considers feminism today and posits that it has become more an idea than a movement, and one that often lacks the visionary quality that it once had.

From the Paper:

"Since the late eighteenth century women have chosen a positive role for themselves, in their social and political communities. Feminism is a systems of ideas, theories and political strategies, which centre on women's experience and demands in a male-dominated society. At the end of the 20th century the world in general, and the developed world in particular is presenting itself in a new outlook. The Western model of liberal democratic societies has been victorious over authoritarian systems in Latin America and Europe. In our society we can see a change in political groups and activism: politics is no longer emphasizes itself as the binding and controlling mechanism of social cohesion and democratic legislation, but presents itself as the national regulator of the neoliberal world economy."
