Feminism has historically come in 3 waves in the United States.

The 1st wave was universal suffrage, which led to granting women the same voting rights as men nationwide via passage of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution. Previous to this, the decisions of voting laws were left to the states, and those laws were not consistent. Some allowed women full voting rights; some allowed voting for just state elections; some allowed voting in just presidential elections. Similarly to the 14th Amendment's equal protect clause, the 19th Amendment moved equality in voting to the Federal level.

The 2nd wave happened in several nations and was related to equal representation in the workplace and in other areas. The peak was during the Civil Rights period of US history, though is spanned probably a decade on either end.

The 3rd wave is what's happening now. This is marked by misandry, social justice warriors, abortions, and attempts at fabricating inequalities where they don't exist. For example, the gender pay gap is a debunked myth from the 1970s (toward the tail end of the 2nd wave), which claims that women earn about 71%-78% of what men earn for the same experience and equivalent jobs. There are 2 problems with this claim: (1) If it was true, no companies would hire men because it would be cheaper to hire women to increase profit margins. (2) The percentage was derived from averaging estimates of pay across entire industries, not taking into account that women statistically take off more time to raise children than men do and that women in the 1970s didn't choose as many higher paying careers as they do now (For example: nurses, instead of doctors). Recent analyses have found that single women earn about 104% what single men do for the same experience and the same job.

My view is that 1st wave and 2nd wave feminism were needed to bring about equality, but 3rd wave feminism is nothing more than a political method of creating faux outrage for politicians to divide the populace and gain votes. It's an example of the Hegelian Dialectic, wherein government officials divide people into opposing factions, called the "thesis" and the "antithesis". From the chaos that arises, they can form a "synthesis" of increased power.
