FAQs About Evolutionary Feminism


Q: What is the difference between Darwinian Feminism and Evolutionary Feminism?

A: None: They both view feminism from an evolutionary perspective, but some feminists object to the attachment of Darwin's name to this "new" female behavioral perspective as a historical holdover from patriarchical dominace. In your studies of Darwin you will discover that Darwin was opposed to the dissemination of birth control material. That being the case, it would conflict with one of the core beliefs of evolutionary feminism that female choice in mate selection and reproductive choice is inviolable.
