The Third Feminist Wave: Transversal Politics

"Lipstick feminism, girlie feminism, riot grrl feminism, cybergrrl feminism, transfeminism, or just grrl feminism—feminism is alive and kicking. Born with the privileges that first- and second-wave feminists fought for, thirdwave feminists generally see themselves as capable, strong, and assertive social agents: “The Third Wave is buoyed by the confidence of having more opportunities and less sexism (Baumgardner & Richards, 2000, p. 83). Young feminists now reclaim the term “girl” in a bid to attract another generation, while engaging in a new, more self-assertive—even aggressive—but also more playful and less pompous kind of feminism. They declare, in the words of Karen McNaughton (1997), “And yes that’s G.r.r.l.s which is, in our case, cyber-lingo for Great- girls. Grrl is also a young at heart thing and not limited to the under 18s.” (via) , Charlotte Krolokke, Anne Scott Sorensen (2005) "Three Waves of Feminism: From Suffragettes to Grrls"
