Dr. Cat has dedicated her life’s work to examining the experience of women in a global culture of patriarchy, defined as “rule by the father.”  Her purpose has been to identify the means by which any oppressor dominates the oppressed & forces them to submit to his dictates.  Although her Theory of Oppression can be applied to all oppressed groups, it focuses primarily on the experience of women.
