Radical feminist theory is based upon a recognition of a systematic oppression of women that goes beyond the flaws in law or rights. While most radical feminists do support the actions of the more accepted liberal feminism, they also believe that these actions are simply not enough, that they do more to salve the wound than cure the infection. Because radical feminists believe that the systematic oppression permeates everything, from law to society to interpersonal relations to gender nuetral language, they support all actions of change and transformation, but they believe that focus only on legal change is shortsighted and will never completely solve anything.

Radical feminists believe, essentially, that the only way that we can make the world a better place is to completely change it - radical transformation is the only real way to get there.
