An article written by Elinor Burkett and Laura Brunell on Encyclopedia Britannica says  that feminism is, “the belief in the social, economic, and political equality of the sexes,” (2018)  or in simpler form: the complete equality between man and woman. Women all over the world,  at some time in history have been confined to their homes for work. Women have been denied  the right to vote, forced to marry, and even sold like everyday goods. Some women were forced  to cover parts of their body, including their faces, if they were to go out in public. Women were  refused seats in any national or local form of government too. These problems have occurred  since the Medieval times and have progressively gotten better overtime, though these types of  inequalities still take place in modern America during the 21 st  century (Brunell and Burkett  2018). By turning the knob backwards on history, the first wave of feminism in the United States can be identified as inspired by the Civil Rights movement, but primarily for the fight for  women’s suffrage. The second wave of feminism later occurred during the 1960’s and 1970’s  when women had become inspired and thrilled by the thought of equality and justice (Brunell  and Burkett 2018). There are many ways that men have be able to dominate different factors in  society compared to the many brilliant women who were pushed into the shadows and not  credited with the same amount of recognition. However, many women from history and  feminists today are active in their communities and truly care about the equality of man and  women for their sisters across the globe and also for themselves.  Judy Chicago is a painter, sculptor, and installation artist and is also considered one of  “the pioneers of Feminist art”. One of her most famous and most controversial forms of feminist  art is the installation of  The Dinner Party  (1979) (“Judy Chicago”).   The Dinner Party  includes

massive amounts of detail with 39 plate settings for some of Western history’s most important  female figures. The installation includes a large triangular table with plate settings that have a  specific style and design tailored for each woman. Each setting has its own porcelain plate with  an image of the vulvar on it, embroidered runners, gold chalices, and utensils. Beneath the table  is a white tiled floor that has the names of 999 more significant female figures inscribed in gold  (“The Dinner Party by Judy Chicago”). To be completely accurate, the plate of Sojourner Truth

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
