The uncritical equality strategy associated with liberal feminism has been rejected to varying degrees by several recent forms of feminism.

In modern discourses of liberation, things are deplored or praised in terms of conformity to a concept of ‘full humanity’. 11 Once these assumptions are made explicit, the connection between the stance adopted on the issue of the woman/nature connection and the different options for feminism becomes clearer. In terms of this framework the main traditional position—the point of departure for feminism—can be seen as one in which the ideals of human character are not, as they often pretend to be, gender-neutral, but instead converge with those of mastery, while the ideals of womanhood diverge.
