Hack #5

This week in lecture and small section we discussed feminism. One thing we talked about was how much of the feminism of the past was focused on white women rather than all women. For example, it is widely accepted that women gained the right to vote in 1920, however this was only true for white women. Native American women didn’t receive this right until 1924, Asian women in 1952, and black women were not allowed to vote until 1964. One thing I think the current wave of feminism does well is benefit a more wide-spread portion of society, even including men. I thought this picture was a good representation of the intersectionality of different groups that are included in the current push of feminism.
