|Subject: Patriarchy is a social Thu Aug 18, 2011 10:06 pm|| |
Patriarchy is a social system in which the role of the male as the primary authority figure is central to social organization, and where fathers hold authority over women, children, and property. It implies the institutions of male rule and privilege, and is dependent on female subordination.
Historically, the principle of patriarchy has been central to the social, legal, political, and economic organization of Celtic, Germanic, Roman, Greek, Hebrew, Arabian, Indian, and Chinese cultures, and has had a deep influence on modern civilization.
Most forms of feminism characterize patriarchy as an unjust social system that is oppressive to women. In feminist theory the concept of patriarchy often includes all the social mechanisms that reproduce and exert male dominance over women.personeelsfeest Noord Hollandvideo production services
