A Case of Trickle-down Feminism

Cameron, Kari

"Trickle-down feminism,” a notion that rights and privileges enjoyed by an elite group of women will trickle down and benefit the majority of women, is wholly ineffective in promoting positive social change. It should be replaced by the principles of equalism, a belief in the value and responsibility of all people. Social workers, through our professional experience and knowledge of family dynamics, can play a pivotal role in promoting equalism over trickle-down feminism.
