Female or Feminist?

One of the questions I’m grappling with at the moment is if there’s a difference between female and feminist, specifically in regards to creative methodologies. I have much more research to do on existing feminist theatre methodologies (much more, as in, I know nothing), but the hypothequestionidea floating around in my head is this:

1) Do feminist methodologies exist as a reaction to the suppression of women’s voices?

2) Would a female methodology be the methodology that would exist if there’d been no need for feminism, say on Themyscira (Wonder Woman’s island, if you had to Google it like I did)?

3) If yes, is it possible to create/discover a true female methodology? What would that look like?

Thoughts?
