Elliott, Jane. “Stepford U.S.A.: Second-Wave Feminism, Domestic Labor, and the Representation of National Time.” Cultural Critique 70 (2008): 32-62. (30)
As with any political or social movement spanning decades there is a separation of rights, demands, ideals which each generation strives for. In Jane Elliott’s piece, “Stepford U.S.A.: Second-Wave Feminism, Domestic Labor, and the Representation of National Time”, she explains the issue, and lack thereof, of separating such great movements over the course of time and the effect it has on the social presence of the revolution. First-wave and second-wave feminists are the two groups which the feminist movement has been separated and which hold their own nation of flaws and accomplishments, both of which embraced, either subconsciously or blatantly, the “feminist politics center[ed] on the temporalized dilemma of the white, middle-class suburban housewife”, unfortunately a subject of the feminist gaze which is close to all that has been introduced.89 Though Elliott’s piece argues for the separation of these two groups because of mainstream ideals, in example first-wave focused on voting rights while second-wave focused on the separation of the female from restraints of the home, this newest generation of feminists are still clumped into that of the latter, creating an idea that, what would be “third-wave” feminists hold similar demands as their predecessors. Though there is still a fight for the female separation from the classically feminine, there is an argument to be made that this generation of feminists deserves a movement all their own.
