Most people in the United States think of feminism, or the more commonly used term "women's lib", as a movement that aims to make women the social equals of men. Radical feminism is working for the eradication of domination and elitism in all human relationships. Diverting energy from feminist movement that aims to change society, many women concentrate on the development of a counter-culture, a woman-centered world wherein participants have little contact with men. Liberal women have not been alone in drawing upon the dynamism of feminism to further their interests. The great majority of women who have benefited in any way from feminist-generated social reforms do not want to be seen as advocates of feminism. Focusing on feminism as political commitment, we resist the emphasis on individual identity and lifestyle. Personal experiences are important to feminist movement, but they cannot take the place of theory.
