Relationship between feminism and anthropology

‘There is an awkward relationship between feminism and anthropology to a certain extent. Feminist anthropology of which developed during the 17s has developed significantly over time, creating a snowball effect in changing the discipline of anthropology. This ‘awkward relationship’ between anthropology and feminism began when feminist anthropology sought to explain what they saw as the universal subordination of women and how they would contribute to changing this.”  (Marilyn Strathern,1941-)
