Feminist ideology has played an insignificant role in the development of its structures and strategies, although nonfeminist ideas have been adapted from the political context in which each branch grew which have affected its organizational style.

The extent of feminist or protofeminist consciousness, by which I mean an awareness of the inequality of women and a determination to resist it, that now exists in the United States, is an accomplishment of the women’s movement.

The movements of the sixties, despite their problems of sexism, provided a supportive environment for the development of a radical women’s consciousness and a movement that demanded women’s equality and linked it to demands for class and racial equality.

 The Anarcha-Feminist Movement
Another anarchist man, and perhaps the most influential male feminist, published his journal Lucifer, and dedicated it to the "emancipation of women from sex slavery." However, because of his support for the women’s rights movement, neither Herman nor Lucifer were taken seriously by other anarchist men (Marsh 55-56).

Mainstream feminists saw the anarchists as ideologists, mainly because the major advocates of suffrage were socially privileged and had no problem with the system they lived in.
