Is Feminism evil? Well, we will find out soon.
Before we dive into the matter at hand. Let’s have a brief idea to what Feminism is all about and how it came to be.
Definition of Feminism
According to Britannica, Feminism is the belief in gender equality in social, economic, and political matters. Feminism is a worldwide movement that is represented by many organisations dedicated to advancing women’s rights and interests, despite its origins in the West.
How Feminism started
The idea of feminism did not spring up overnight. It involved processes/stages that than through hundreds of years. These stages are termed “waves”.
The First Wave of Feminism
In the mid-nineteenth century, the first wave of feminism emerges in the United States (US) and the United Kingdom (UK). The main goal for women at the time was to obtain legal rights.
The second wave of Feminism
Western feminist movements gained legislative milestones in terms of reproductive rights, equal pay, and equal education throughout the next two decades. It advocated for women to be able to open bank accounts without the approval of their husbands, and it condemned domestic abuse and sexual harassment. The movement’s core issue was sexual abuse, and there were also movements in the United States to end forced sterilisations of people of color and persons with disabilities.
The Third Wave
The third wave is characterized by an increasing awareness of intersectionality, a term coined by Kimberlé Crenshaw in the 1980s. It recognised the interconnected forms of racism, classism, ableism, and other forms of discrimination, and chastised the second wave for primarily addressing the concerns of white, middle-class, straight women.
The Fourth Wave
The fourth wave’s most distinguishing feature is its engagement with the media and its internet campaigning for social change. This means it employs campaigns on rape culture and body shaming, as well as hashtags like #MeToo and #YesAllWomen, to promote feminist causes on the internet, particularly on social media. This has resulted in a change in pop culture that has resonated with young girls, women, and minority genders all around the world, spawning youthful activist online communities. While the fourth wave shares many of the same characteristics as the third, it is claimed that it goes even further in terms of sex and body positivity, as well as supporting women’s empowerment.
