Was the Royal Commission on the Status of Women, 1970 a strongly feminist document?

Hello Babblers,

 

I am taking part in a debate in my History class and I am arguing for the negative. Basically, from my research I have gathered that the RCSW was headed by 'liberal feminists' who wanted equal rights but not affirmative action.

 

Is that the difference between a mildly feminist document and a strongly feminist one?

 

I am sure there are Babblers out there who know more than I do about the history of feminism and the different waves and branches of feminism.

 

What are the main critiques by feminists of the RCSW?
