FEMINIST LITERARY CRITICISM: An Understanding of FeminismBy: Azhariah RachmanINTRODUCTIONIt is broadly acknowledged that feminism is one of the theories used in social and cultural science.

This definition is based upon cultural reality and the truth of history, in a level of consciousness, perception and action in each person who has been through it (Bhasin, 1999:4). So, the term feminism in 17th century when the first time to word used, is not the same as used in 1980s. The different perception, action and consciousness are applied in one type of feminism but in different person. Furthermore, it is not awkward to say that in one type of feminism we could find different arguments and opinions, including the root of problem, the patriarchal system, and mens domination to women. Beside that, the aim of the struggle is also different from one another, especially in creating a society without oppression and classes. Moreover, the aim is free from gender bias.
