The Mission Statement of Socialist Feminists

This article further highlights the socialist feminists’ idea that “freedom is a social achievement” mentioned in the previous two articles, “Feminism Is Liberalism Is Socialism (Part 4)” and “Book Review: Manning Up”. 


I heard a talk-radio host once demanding to know what the liberals’ blueprint is for the future. The last thing liberals want to do is reveal the details of their plan. Why? Because they know you won’t like it.


Socialist feminist Alison Jaggar describes how the means is the ends a couple of times in her book, Feminist Politics and Human Nature. Socialist feminists focus more on what they are changing away from, not on what they are changing to. The following is as close to a blueprint as you’ll find. 



“The emphasis on the process of struggle rather than on its ends relieves those who advocate liberation from the need to attempt a complete characterization of the end at which they aim. It weakens the temptation to plan utopias by the recognition that our conception of what it is to be liberated must be subject to constant revision. As human knowledge of nature, including human nature, develops, we gain more insight into possible human goods and learn how they may be achieved through increasing control both of ourselves and our world. Through this process, the sphere of human agency is constantly increased. Drought is no longer an act of God but the result of failure to practice suitable water conservation measures; disease and malnutrition are no longer inevitabilities but the results of social policy. Consequently, constraints that once were viewed as natural necessities are transformed into instances of oppression; simultaneously, the possible domain of human liberation is constantly being extended. In principle, therefore, liberation is not some finally achievable situation; instead, it is the process of eliminating forms of oppression as long as these continue to arise.” Page 6. [Emphasis added.]


The mantra of feminists is: “We’re oppressed. We’re victims. Life owes us a living. This is all everybody else’s fault but ours.”


Here is their mission statement:



“For socialist feminism, freedom consists in transcending the realm of necessity in every area of human life, including sexuality and procreation. Freedom is a social achievement and cannot be achieved by isolated individuals in the absence of a general reordering of society.” Page 306.


Jaggar mentions the alternative of “test-tube babies” a few times in her book. Feminists want to transcend the necessity of the uterus in procreation. Consequently, the awful natural necessity of pregnancy is transformed into an instance of “oppression”. Now you know why abortion is considered sacred within the religion of feminism. Pregnancy reminds feminists that men and women are different and they see abortion as a solution for the “oppression” of pregnancy. 


To feminists, marriage, family, pregnancy, and the uterus are sooo 1950s. Feminists want to abolish every American institution and transform “every area of human life, including sexuality and procreation”, replace them with Government, and render the uterus useless.
