 Radical feminism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Radical feminism is a branch of feminism that views women's oppression (or patriarchy) as the basic evil upon which human relationships in society are arranged.
While Radical feminism posits that the root cause of all other inequalities is the oppression of women, some Radical feminists acknowledge the simultaneity or intersectionality of different types of oppression which may include, but are not limited to the following: gender, race, class, perceived attractiveness, sexuality, ability, whilst still affirming the recognition of patriarchy.
This feminism was truly radical in both a political sense, and in the sense of seeking the root cause of the oppression of women.

 Radical Reformation
The radical movement developed social as well as religious dimensions when its members joined forces with rural priests such as Simon Stumpf at Hongg and Wilhelm Reublin at Wittikon, who sought to establish self - governing Volkskirchen in the rural communities, independent of Zurich's central authority, both religious and civil.
Thus at Schleitheim first emerged the idea of a "free church." These Swiss Brethren came to be known for their legalistic approach to the Bible, a salvation manifesting itself in the creation of separated congregations, and baptism which symbolized that salvation and made the baptizand a member of the congregation.
Radicals characterized as spiritualizers downplayed significantly or rejected altogether external forms of church and ceremonies, opting instead for inner communion through the Holy Spirit.

 About The Radical Academy
The "radical" pictured in our logo on the entry page is Aristotle, the first great synoptic philosopher, the father of systematic logic, and an advocate of commonsense philosophical realism.
As long as these are initially considered speculative, tentative, or experimental, there can be no rational objection to probing the mysterious realms of the natural universe or challenging what is considered to be the "conventional" wisdom.
Agreeing with Aristotle, The Radical Academy, while recognizing the primary importance of moral and intellectual goods to living a good life, also recognizes that human beings, in order to live well, must have the opportunity to acquire and possess material goods and those goods of fortune which they may desire.
