The Case for Trump

Victor Davis Hanson




First-wave feminism was largely a movement of upper-class white women fighting for legal equality. Second-wave feminism (1960's) fought prejudice and violence directed at women more generally, although viewing women as a homogeneous, white group. It wasn't until third-wave feminism (1990's) that feminists began to accept that class/race/sexuality/etc. intersected with someone's gender to create a nonlinear terrain of privilege and oppression. I gather from the author, the impression of liberals is they have not accepted third-wave feminism's intersectionality.
