Feminist Identity Theory

Feminist therapists believe that the patriarchal aspect of U.S. society is responsible for many of the problems faced by women

Feminist identity theory posits an evolution of consciousness of societal subjugation of women:

Passive-acceptance—the women accepts traditional gender roles and believes that men are superior to women

Revelation—events of sexism occur in a way that cannot be ignored or denied

Embeddedness-emanation—formation of close relationships with other women

Synthesis—a positive feminist identity is fully developed

Active-commitment—the woman is now interested in turning her attention towards making societal changes
