Sex and society

“Third wave feminists came into adulthood during or after the last decades of the 20th century. They focus on increasing the involvement of women of colour, better known as women of activism”

“Third wave feminism is global rather than national in its concerns. The movement also sets out to challenge and reject a binary view of society that opposes men and women”

“they embrace and encourage individualism and see human emancipation as an ultimate goal”

“Like their forerunners, third have feminists believe that women should enjoy the same rights in society as men and that women should have the chance the participate equally in societies opportunities.”

“Third wave feminism which is also known as contemporary feminism is concerned with gender equality regardless of how important a role gender plays in a persons life.”

“third wave feminists often criticise second wave feminism for representing only white, middle class, heterosexual women.”
