What Does Feminism Look Like in 2018?
Feminists of today continue to fight for the same issues tackled by their foremothers. They continue to build on the previous work.
Some of the main issues they work on include pay equality, sexism against women (misogyny), and reproductive rights of women.
Furthermore, American feminists work on ending violence against women in the United States and the rest of the world.
Since the First Wave, feminists made a lot of progress. However, they still struggle for acceptance and an honest understanding of what it means to be a “feminist.”
To most people, a feminist is an old relic from a forgotten era, a woman with curly hair, or a woman who hates men for no reason. The wide range of feminist issues didn’t help uncloudy the definition either.
In short, it is becoming more challenging to describe how a feminist would look like.
For now, everyone seems to settle for the dictionary definition, which define feminism as: “the theory of the political, economic, and social equality of the sexes.”
