FEMINISM IN THE 21ST CENTURY
Feminism has been all over the place since women realized their importance in a patriarchal society. While once it found its voice in seminal texts like Mary Wollstonecraft’s A Vindication of the Rights of Women, John Stuart Mills’ The Subjection of Women, Virginia Woolf’s A Room of One’s Own, and Simone de Beauvior’s The Second Sex, in the 21st century you may come across it on social media, fashion magazines, Hollywood, and pop music etc. Though the medium of expression may have changed, feminism is still going places and supporting women empowerment. In the 21st Century, it is facing various threats: be it some people saying that feminism has failed or women themselves being apprehensive of embracing the tag of feminism. More or less, it has always helped women realizing their social roles in patriarchal societies across the globe.
