Y: The Last Man[edit]

Is "Y: The Last Man" an example of something informed by Third-wave feminism?

The reason why I think it is, is because: It doesn't say that women can't do all these things that men do today; Instead, it seems to argue that we are split on these lines because people self-type themselves int gender roles. It doesn't argue that men are making women not able to do things. (2nd wave.) And it doesn't argue that men are worthless. That said, it seems very inessentialist; It argues (very convincingly) that women would do all the things men do, if there were no men. I don't understand what "transnationalism" means, in the context of feminism.

I don't know; I don't understand the words in the article very deeply, but it sure seems that what it's describing, Y fits it perfectly, in a way I have a hard time articulating. I'm talking like this because I understand Y, I don't understand this description of third-wave feminism, and I'm trying to contextualize my experience here.

If uh... somebody could help me out here, ...

Could someone check if Molly Yard should really be listed here? Given her age (born 1912-07-06), and that she stopped being NOW's president in 1991, I suspect that she would be more appropriately placed in an earlier wave. I suspect this is a misplacement. Corrections? Justifications? If she IS justifiably 3rd wave, then I think that justification needs to go into an article. -- Dwheeler

Dietary Feminism[edit]

Haven't done alot of research, but the link between vegetarianism and femenism seemed a little random. The phrase 'some third wave femenist's might be better phrased as 'A third wave feminist'... unless this work is defining to 3rd wave femenism in general, I'm not sure if it should be mentioned here... third wave femenism is touching on alot of subjects.

Minor suggestion, phrasing first paragraph.[edit]

"The movement arose partially as a response to the perceived failures of and backlash against initiatives and movements created by second-wave feminism during the 1960s, '70s, and '80s, and the perception that women are of "many colors, ethnicities, nationalities, religions and cultural backgrounds".

as a response to the perceived failures ... and the perception that - confusing. Should be re-arranged so 'the perception that ...' is not associated with 'as a response to ...'

I also found the full quote to be - "The third wave feminism movement is based on the thought that females are of many colors, ethnicities, nationalities, religions and cultural backgrounds", but could not find an author.

Some Additions?[edit]

I am a new editor, and was reading over this page and would like to make few suggestions. The pages is very good but I feel as though there are some important aspects to be expounded upon. •the involvement of notable celebrities in the reclaiming of derogatory terms (i.e. Amber Rose) •the criticism that Third Wave Feminism has ended and we are evolving into a new wave of feminism. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Amorphousliquid (talkcontribs) 16:30, 22 September 2016 (UTC)

Gender violence[edit]

I tried to understand this paragraph, but I could't. What is gender violence besides being gender violence? 84.118.73.249 (talk) 22:53, 29 September 2016 (UTC)
