A rule of house hold or of any social institution, such as government. Exclusively by men, for male purposes, in which women are not allowed to participate in leadership.
This tradition was dominant in Human history up until the Early 1900's when it began to change.
Patriarchy has since been nearly abolished in all First world countries. Though, it still exists in other parts of the world.
Many Feminists continue to claim first world countries are oppressed by a Patriarchy. This is actually not true and used as an excuse to continue blaming their so called 'inequality' on men. They also attribute many things such as war and poverty on the 'Patriarchy' even though this is not true.
Radical Feminism's true goal is not gender equality but a society in which men are oppressed. The use of Patriarchy is simply an excuse Misandrists use to justify their man-hate. They will not be satisfied until men are stripped of their power and women are taught to be superior so that men can supposedly 'Feel what it's like to be subjugated'
Examples of these women would be Buenaventura Durruti
