Chapter in new anthology: Disruption, Continuity and Waves in the Feminist Movements

The actual rise and fall of feminist mobilisation is usually described in terms of ‘waves’: the first wave of feminism, the second wave, and maybe a third wave. However, the theoretical foundation of this continuity thesis needs to be clarified. Organisational as well as ideological continuity is at stake here.

“The Feminist movement is like the sea: it comes in waves and cannot be stopped”.
