Feminism has recently seen a resurgence as a result of pervasive post-modernist thought

The recent rise in feminist attitudes is due to the occupation of places of influence such as universities by post-modernist thinkers. Such people advocate a break down of traditional values and society claiming knowledge, merit and law are subjective and used to perpetuate a white male hegemony. This narrative is usually based on group identity politics that defines individuals by what groups they belong to or fit into, and defines everything in society in terms of power and the struggle for it. When post-modernists occupy these positions of power in education they use it to indoctrinate students into thinking of the world in term of groups rather than individuals, and this has fed into biased analysis such as the gender pay gap. Such modern myths have pervaded society and feminism has regained a foothold in the modern psyche.

Feminism’s comprised of three historical movements, the age of the internet could signify a fourth

First wave feminism comprised of the women suffrage movements promoting voting rights for women. The second wave of feminism became a strong movement during the 1960’s cultural revolution and campaigned for legal and social quality for women. Third wave feminism was a reaction to, or continuation of, the movement of the 60’s and has grow in popularity and had a slow and steady effect on policy making since the 1990’s. With the onset of a communicative revolution surrounding the internet, social movements dealing with feminism and discrimination are receiving more attention as the means of dispersing opinion has changed. The internet is marking the death of mainstream media, communication is changing and as a result social issues that matter to the most people will receive the recognition they deserve, while the corporate interests of traditional news media will become of less and less importance.
