Feminism Old and New

We've come a long way, Baby.  But have we come far enough?  Did you know we are now in the "third wave" of feminism?

The first wave fought for and gained the right for women to vote. The second wave struggled to obtain the right for women to have access and equal opportunity to the workforce, as well as ending of legal sex discrimination.  The third wave (arguably starting in the 1990s) seems all over the place, including queer theory; anti-racism and women-of-color consciousness; womanism; girl power; post-colonial theory; postmodernism; transnationalism; cyberfeminism; ecofeminism; individualist feminism; new feminist theory, transgender politics, and a rejection of the gender binary.  Wow!

And what is this about rape culture?

Come and let us know YOUR thoughts!
