Feminism

Do you, or do you not, believe that the field of human services represents the introduction of feminist visions into social service practice? - Sophia

Per your note to FEMINIST.COM, I'd love to be able to respond to it, but I'm not quite sure what exactly you are asking. If you are asking if one of feminism's goals is to incorporate feminism into all social service arenas, than "yes." And why this is so, is if you look at the mission of most social service agencies it is to help those who are less fortunate/less privileged have some help in getting to a place of equality. The majority of those who are helped by social services (or hurt depending on what's happening), are women. And a significant percentage are people of color. So it is entirely sympatico with feminism's vision--which is equality--to support social services as a means to that equality.
