GCSE Family: Model answer

MODEL ANSWER: Explain the feminist view of the family (4 marks)

Feminists are critical of the family. They argue that the family has a negative impact on the lives of many women. Feminists argue the family is patriarchal.  This means that men benefit from the family whilst women often suffer.  For example, many women experience domestic violence within the family.  However, liberal feminists have noted that whilst there are still many improvements to be made, they have found that UK society is becoming more equal and that campaigns are raising awareness of issues such as domestic violence.  However, radical feminists believe that little has changed and that men still hold power in society and in the family.  Some radical feminists suggest political lesbianism as a solution to the patriarchal nature of the family.
