What Has Become of Feminism

What Has Become of Feminism
BY JASMINE BEATTY
SPECIAL TO NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM
COMMENTARY/OPINION

Today I’ve read a disturbing article about the new “Free Your Nipples” fad. What does it mean to be a feminist, when living in a time period where people would rather protest shirts than raise awareness about terrorist bombing by Boko Haram? Being a Peace Corps Volunteer in Cameroon and finishing Women’s Studies Courses at the Richard Stockton College of New Jersey has made me pose this question.

Feminism came in three waves. The first wave came in the 19th century and focused on rights, for example the right to vote. The second wave focused on cultural issues, like Domestic Violence Laws and the Equal Rights Amendment passed in 1972. The third wave, which started in the 90’s has focused on anti-racism and queer theory. During each wave, men played a role in the movement. Yes, not only women are feminist.
