This article from Everyday Feminism written by Kelsey Lueptow really helps to elaborate more on the Third Wave of feminism discussed in the online lecture and in chapter 3 of the textbook. I found it really interesting and helpful with how in depth the article talks about this Third Wave of Feminism and also how it broke it down into different parts. Something that really stuck out to me from the article was where it says, “Therefore, language has a phenomenal power over internalized ideologies that comprise a culture.” I think that statement definitely sums up a lot of what we have been talking about in the course as far as gender and culture goes, but especially through a theory like symbolic interactionism where language plays a very important role.
Check out this video that was posted in 2010 by CNN reporter Carol Costello. It discusses what might be the third wave of Feminism.
Here is the advocacy group founded by Geena Davis I referenced in the APA Report on Sexualization of Young Girls online lecture.

Great overview of how Hillary Clinton has been a champion of women’s rights over her time in politics.
Click here for a look back at Betty Friedan and the impact of her 1963 book The Feminine Mystique, which is credited with inspiring 2nd wave feminists. Does it still hold true for today’s women?
This is an interview with the hilariously frank How to Be a Woman author Caitlin Moran. Think Sex in the City in terms of content, but from a feminist point of view. I highly recommend the book!
Great article about how young women are working as feminists by helping other women get ahead professionally and using social media advocacy.
