    Default Feminism

    So quick (maybe) question about feminism.

    In another thread I noticed a hubber mention identifying with either '2nd wave' or '3rd wave' feminism.

    Is anyone able to explain what this means?

    TIA

    • 1st wave feminism - early 20th century women lobbying to get the vote
    • 2nd wave feminism - think 60s/70s, women out of the house, equal pay for equal work etc.
    • 3rd wave feminism - from mid 90s in response to the perceived failures of and backlash against initiatives and movements created by 2nd wave feminism

    First wave feminism was the birth of the movement - think the sufforgettes.

    Second wave is the one that started in the 1960's,

    3rd wave is a movement that started in the 1990's. They all have different ideologies but ultimately have the same goal.

    "The first wave of feminism between the late 19th century and the early 20th centuries emerged with the changing scope of global politics and rising urban industrialism. The main goals of this wave were to create more opportunities for women in the public sphere and to gain suffrage.

    The second wave of feminism took place from the 1960s through the mid 1990s, igniting with anti-war movements and the civil rights movements brought on by the growing number of minority groups. The main focus of this movement was to gain just sexuality and reproductive rights, in addition to trying to pass the Equal Rights Amendment to the Constitution, which guarantees social equality regardless of sex.

    The third wave of feminism focuses on post-modern thinking. Topics like universal womanhood, body image, gender, sexuality and heteronormativity are applied to the whole of women's roles, not only in today's society, but also the historical actions that evolved into women's status today. This status is persistently challenged by this third wave of feminism to help empower women.'
