First-Wave feminism is generally seen as the rise of feminism in the West. The term refers to the organised activities and campaigns for new rights for women in the latter half of the 1800s, although the term "feminism" wouldn't be coined until 1895.
From the corseted rabble-rousers of the suffragist movement to the sharp-fingered bloggers of today, this comprehensive little guide will teach you the history, theory and big issues and everything you need to know to become a CARD-CARRYING FEMINIST.
