Social workers too often accept without question conventional beliefs on gender roles and the nature of families. Feminist analyses of social work have argued for greater attention to the conditions which women experience. Feminist social work is described as a movement to raise consciousness and give women control of their lives or as an analysis of oppression and modes empowerment for women. This article focuses on feminist contributions to knowledge and skill building in social work. There are many ways to separate theories. The author prefers common division of liberal, radical, socialist and postmodern feminism. Each perspective is presented with a brief overview of the theory, examples of applications of the theory to social work practice and then a critique of theory's and practice's limitations and an assessment of its contributions.
