Summary table of major feminist goals in the United States[edit]

This table seems to be original research. Unless someone can produce some sources the say that these particular goals are in fact the major feminist goals in the United States, I think the section should be deleted (or seriously reworked). At the very least, it is misleading, as it implies that there is a single, coherent set of objectives for all feminists in the US, which is very far from reality. Different forms of feminism have different goals. Rather than presenting such an over-simplified view, perhaps this information could be presented in prose with explanations about who, in particular, has campaigned for or supported each goal.

Hello everyone! I changed the introduction section of this article but have reversed those changes back to its original state. This time, I just added a few words to a sentence to get rid of the awkward phrasing, so instead of it saying "feminism has massive influences" I added "feminism has had a massive influence." Let me know if you agree or disagree to this change, thank you. CollegeFreshmen (talk) 00:08, 27 September 2017 (UTC)

Hello everyone! I just added a couple of sentences in the criticism section of this article introducing intersectionality because this section is referring to how women of color feel excluded from the movement and I wanted to touch base on this topic by introducing and later explaining everything that leads up to intersectionality so I just introduced the topic as a start. Please let me know what you think of my game plan for this section of the article, thank you.CollegeFreshmen (talk) 03:30, 26 September 2017 (UTC)

Hello everyone! I would like to contribute to the critique section of this article so this is my plan. Let me know what you think, thank you! I would like to transition from the third-wave feminist time period to modern feminism by adding examples of how women of color have either made progress or are still hindered from the feminism movement. I would also like to mention the concept of intersectionality and then address opposing views that come with it. 1. Intersectionality: I’ve already tried to start this but I would like to transition from black women being excluded to the history of intersectionality. I’ve already introduced how intersectionality was created. Now, I would like quickly give background information on how Crenshaw came up with the term, how it’s benefited women of color and address opposing opinions on the matter. 2. Opposing Views: There are some people who are against the idea of intersectionality and I would like to present those views. 3. Not Just Women of Color: I can’t just talk about black women, I’ll run out of things to say so when I’m done with analyzing intersectionality, I’d like to expand how exclusive the feminist movement is towards the LBGT community and Trans community.CollegeFreshmen (talk) 02:27, 17 October 2017 (UTC)
