Impressions from the field (not academic research):

- First wave of feminism = women (generally white, straight, well-educated, and well off) fighting for their rights
- Second wave of feminism = women (often white, well-educated, and well off but also a more diverse range of women of color and sexual orientations) fighting for the rights of women of many colors, ethnicities, nationalities, religions, and cultural backgrounds
- Third wave of feminism = more diverse women fighting for the rights of all women including a focus on queer women as well as sex workers
- Third wave of feminism may also = women who believe there is no need for feminism and who do not embrace the term "feminist" but who expect to be treated equally
- Fourth wave of feminism includes intersectionality and the issues of trans women (?)
