The waves of feminism began during the late-19th and early-20th centuries. The first wave focused on promoting equal rights in contracts, marriage, parenting and property. It also included activism in gaining political power and the right for women to vote. The second wave began in the early-1960s and was concerned with women’s issues of cultural and political inequalities and encouraged women to understand the aspects of their personal lives as deeply politicized and as reflecting sexist power structures. Third-wave feminism began in the early-1990s as a response to perceived failures of the second wave and seeks to challenge the second wave’s essentialist definitions of femininity.
