Annotation

Thoroughly updated and expanded, the second edition of A History of U.S. Feminisms is an introductory text that will be used as supplementary material for first-year women s studies students or as a brush-up text for more advanced students. Covering the first, second, and third waves of feminism, A History of U.S. Feminisms will provide historical context of all the major events and figures from the late nineteenth century through today. The chapters cover: first-wave feminism, a period of feminist activity during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries which focused primarily on gaining women's suffrage; second-wave feminism, which started in the 60s and lasted through the 80s and emphasized the connection between the personal and the political; and third-wave feminism, which started in the early 90s and is best exemplified by its focus on diversity and intersectionality, queer theory, and sex-positivity.
