Throughout history, it has become apparent that women have been overlooked by society, whether they were considered the possession of their husbands and fathers, or being denied a voice in the society they are part of. In the 19th and early 20th centuries women sought to fight for the rights they deserve. This movement, also referred to as the first wave of feminism, mainly focused on the right to vote. The second wave (1963- 1980’s) movement tackled the issue of patriarchal society. This phase was considered to include only middle income white women.
