Young women today have benefited from the strides made by social activists in the 1960s and 70s, yet are hesitant to identify themselves as feminists or address persistent sexism. Contesting the notion that we are in a post-feminist age, these essays identify a third wave of feminism.


Young women today have benefited from the strides made by grassroots social activists in the 1960s and 1970s, yet they are hesitant to identify themselves as feminists and seem apathetic about carrying the torch of older generations to redress persistent sexism and gender-based barriers. Contesting the notion that we are in a post-feminist age, this collection of essays identifies a third wave of feminism. The contributors argue that the next generation needs to develop a politicized, collective feminism that both builds on the strategies of second wave feminists and is grounded in the material realities and culture of the 21st century. Organized into five sections which mirror the stages of consciousness-raising, the book looks at a broad range of perspectives on the diversity, complexity, multiplicity and playfulness of the third wave. It is also a call to action for new voices to redefine a feminism that is not only personally aware, but also politically involved.
