To interpret this issue secondary source of data were employed. The review investigates that radical feminists always struggle for gender equality and they are extremists for subjection and secondary status given to girls & women. As a result they concluded that male/men supremacy as unavoidable, which is found in every person’s blood and in the society in general and recommend that women to become autonomous human beings by establishing women sisterhood up to homosexual relationships.
