Difference feminism is a philosophy that stresses that men and women are ontologically different versions of the human being.[citation needed] Many Catholics adhere to and have written on the philosophy, though the philosophy is not specifically Catholic.[citation needed]

Although the title "difference feminism" is a relatively recent addition to the feminist movement, the philosophies of gender relations undergirding this category have their roots as far back as the early Greeks.[1] Forms of difference feminism often stress a fundamental biological, emotional, psychological or spiritual difference between the sexes.
