Postfeminist? Okay...

One of the arguments that Kristin Rowe-Finkbeiner makes in A Tsunami In History is the idea that we live in a post-feminist society, but she still thinks that there is work to be done. Over the years, as the feminist waves continue to make their way into society, each generation has managed to pass on something of value to the next. And even though a lot of progress has been made by feminists and surporters alike, there is still quite a lot of work to be made. Even though these ideas and movements are still being passed around, the newer generations have a difficult time removing the foggy lenses society has placed over their eyes. Rowe-Finkbeiner did state, however, that the third wave of feminism has sparked a new discovery. She writes:  "there are many ways to be a woman." Not just that, but the things that first and second wave feminist failed to see and focus on (i.e. race and class) are now taken into account to make the movement even broader.
