Second Wave of Feminism!
This wave in feminism was still a very powerful and political time for women. Now that they had the right to vote, their next goal was to gain as many rights they possibly could. They were working to eventually have just as many rights as men and voting was a good start.
There were some important events and influential people who were alive during the second wave. For example, Betty Friedan who wrote the book “The Feminine Mystique” in 1963. Her book expressed the dissatisfaction that many women were feeling at this time due to the suffrage they were going through. This book caused many women to look into their lives and see how poorly society was treating them.
Gloria Steinem was one of the most influential women of this wave. She was an instrumental member of the woman’s movement and, since then she has continued to advocate for the rights of women and their equality.
The second wave of feminism opened the eyes of many women and inspired them to join the movement and fight for their rights.
