what fourth wave?[edit]

The lede mentions a fourth wave of feminism, but I don't see one. Some people seem to have added the term as a moniker for what they're doing but I don't see a separate feminist ideology, strategy, or group identity as I do for the other three, largely generational. If we start naming new waves every couple of years or so the concept of wave will quickly become meaningless. There's too little to call it postfeminist. The term is redlinked, meaning there's no article for it. Unless someone is planning to write a Wikipedia article on it, I think I should remove that sentence from the lede, since the rest of the sentence doesn't seem to have any solid basis either. Thoughts? Thanks. Nick Levinson (talk) 03:58, 4 August 2010 (UTC)

The editing proposed is done. Thank you. Nick Levinson (talk) 07:34, 13 August 2010 (UTC)

the first sentence is POV[edit]

Post-feminism is a reaction against some of the contradictions and absences of second-wave feminism.

This sentence asserts that second-wave feminism has contradictions and absences, as opposed to the rest of the article which is scrupulous about attributing all claims about feminism to their authors rather than putting them in WP's voice. I'm going to replace "some of the" with "some perceived". -- 98.108.222.235 (talk) 20:36, 12 November 2010 (UTC)
