Stages of Feminism

The history of feminism is the order of movements and ideas aimed for equal rights for women of all races. While feminism existed since the early 1200's, the most prominent periods existed in the 19th and 20th century (first-wave feminism), the 1960's through 1980's (second-wave feminism), and the 1990's through 2000's (third-wave feminism).

2014 was described as a watershed for women's rights. Many magazines such as The Gaurdian and Time have stated that 2014 ""may have been the best year for women since the dawn of time."" Social media aided with the spread of feminism with topics like the Twitter campaign #YesAllWomen (which offered examples of sexism and attracted over one million tweets within four days in May), and the video "10 Hours of Walking in NYC as a Woman" showed 108 instances described as harassment.

Twitter accounts like WomanAgainstFeminism (@NoToFeminism) is an example of feminist projects.

However, there is a type of feminism that only includes white, middle-class women. This is called white-feminism and is not what real feminism is. Real feminism includes all people of all sexes, racial backgrounds, ethnic backgrounds, religious backgrounds, and cultural backgrounds.
