.First wave feminism was about women as women. Second wave feminism was about women as persons. Being a woman is not less than being a person; it is more."
Actually, both waves were quite shortsighted in their mindset, as neither incorporated the experiences of black women and black women as individual actors in their views.
The overwhelming majority of first wave feminists did not extend their push for women's right to vote to black women (in fact they tended to argue for the franchise as a mechanism to reinforce white supremacy). Ms. Friedan's form of feminism argued that stay-at-home-momhood created a malaise in "the American woman", when it has been white women and not black women who have stayed at home.
Black women have always worked in America.
