Feminism refers to political, cultural, and
economic movements aimed at establishing
greater rights and legal protections for women.
Feminism includes some of the sociological
theories and philosophies concerned with issues
of gender difference. It is also a movement that
campaigns for women's rights and interests.

Nancy Cott defines feminism as the belief in the
importance of gender equality, invalidating the
idea of gender hierarchy as a socially constructed
concept.

According to Maggie Humm and Rebecca Walker, the
history of feminism can be divided into three
waves. The first wave transpired in the nineteenth
and early twentieth centuries, the second occurred
in the 1960s and 1970s, and the third extends from
the 1990s to the present. Feminist theory emerged
from these feminist movements. It is manifest in
a variety of disciplines such as:



feminist geography,

feminist history,

feminist theology,

feminist literary criticism.
