Description:

The paper discusses how Mill argues that a principle of perfect equality is necessary to counteract the current social principle whereby women are oppressed through patriarchy. The paper explains that women are placed in a state of social and political subordination to males through social arrangements, institutions, and structures, and Mill perceives the way to overcome these current problems with social relations between the sexes as being through a legalized system of perfect equality. The paper notes that other possible solutions have been offered, and liberal feminism with its radical component can refine those proposals.
