Feminism… The Second Wave

After the ratification of the 19th amendment in 1920, which granted women the right to vote, the first wave of feminism significantly diminished. Although many of these feminists continued to fight for women’s rights. The next prolonged feminist movement is believed to have begun in the 1960s. Much like the first wave that emerged during a period of social reform, the second wave also surfaced amidst other social and political movements.

Moreover, in the middle of the first and the second wave, French feminist author Simone de Beauvoir published a foundational book that is believed to set the tone for the next surge of women’s rights activism. Published in 1949, her book entitled “The Second Sex,” provided extensive explanations of womanhood and delineated how women have historically been treated as second to men. Originally published in France, “The Second Sex” quickly became a phenomenon and was published in the United States in 1953. Beauvoir was not only a feminist writer but she was also considered a philosopher because her writings often answered complex and philosophical questions. In “The Second Sex,” she questions, “What is a woman?” Ultimately, she determined that “one is not born but becomes a woman.”
