Intro to Sociology Dr. Chapman Feminism Essay Notes Feminism is view that biology is not destiny, and that stratification based on  gender is wrong and should be resisted. Feminism is also about me and women  being equal and started in three waves. The first wave of feminists had a radical  branch that wanted to reform all the institutions of society at once, and the  conservative branch that wanted to win the right to vote for women. The  conservative branch dominated and won the right to vote in 1920 but soon  dissolved because of the lack of goal displacement. Without goal displacement, the first wave of feminism had no reason to continue and didn't adapt their original  goal into something that would keep them going. The 1960s had the idea of  women's purpose being the companions of men and to be mothers, but  after women took jobs and compared working conditions, the second wave of  feminism began. It ran from the 1960s to the 1980s, and the goals were much  broader and continue today. It varied from raising women's pay to changing  abortion and violence policies. The biggest difference was that the second wave  had better goal displacement, as it had numerous goals that would ensure  the movement would keep going even if one was achieved. The fact that it had  broader goals also meant that they wouldn't been as black and white, and the  problems would continually be improved. About 1990, the third wave of feminism  began and currently has many divisions. The three main focus points are the  problems of women in least industrialized Nations, the criticism of values that  dominated society, and the emphasis on women's sexual pleasure. The third wave  has huge goals and also sharp disagreements. The goals for feminism in the third  wave of global and aim to change the core of patriarchy. The goal displacement for the third wave of feminism ensures that this movement keeps aiming for equality  and change without dissolving any time soon.
