This is a list of feminists who were a part of 1st wave feminism, my favorite feminist movement. I've included lots of photos of famous feminists. Feminism is the quest for women's rights. Modern feminist theory divides the feminist movement into 1st and 2nd wave feminism, followed later by 3rd wave feminism. The first wave of feminists poured the foundation for gender equality by winning women's right to vote. The history of feminism during the era, however, is marred by a specific controversy. While the women's movement acquired woman suffrage, they also pushed through prohibition. That said, feminism to this day is still a sisterhood of women empowerment fighting for the rights of women.
