What is Third Wave Feminism?

Naomi Wolf explains 3rd wave feminism …

Proponents of third-wave feminism claim that it allows women to define feminism for themselves by incorporating their own identities into the belief system of what feminism is and what it can become through one’s own perspective. It can change with every generation and individual… Third-wave feminism seeks to challenge or avoid what it deems the second wave’s “essentialist” definitions of femininity, which often assumed a universal female identity and over-emphasized experiences of upper-middle-class white women. – More: Wikipedia

 

So are you 2nd or 3rd wave… or maybe 4th!
