tenet - vocabulary

  edgood  —  Grammar Tips

An opinion, principle, dogma, or doctrine a person or group believes or maintains as true.
A central tenet of modern feminist thought has been the assertion that “all women are oppressed.” This assertion implies that women share a common lot, that factors like class, race, religion, sexual preference, etc. do not create a diversity of experience that determines the extent to which sexism will be an oppressive force in the lives of individual women.

—Bell Hooks Feminist Theory (1984)
