Response to La Lioness Priyanka (Original post)

15. Yes, I identify as a feminist and as a no wave one

but with a foundation in what is now termed second wave feminism. I don't think of feminism as having more than two waves. I see newer feminist theory as a natural outgrowth of the goals of second wavers.

IOW, I still think the second wave got it right for some women and managed to make major strides in moving all women closer to equality with men but once that was accomplished it was time to listen to the voices of women who still felt like their struggles and their notions of equality were not addressed. New, fresh approaches were developed and it naturally follows that some were at odds with earlier theory. The world changes and feminist theory needs to change with it.
