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.
