Second-wave feminism attempted to further combat social and cultural inequalities.
Third-wave feminism full citation needed includes renewed campaigning for women’s greater influence in politics. HISTORY CAUSES Over the course of the 1970s, a large variety of influential women accepted lesbianism and bisexuality as part of feminism As a result, a significant proportion of feminists favored this view, however, others considered sexuality irrelevant to the attainment of other goals. Sexuality, sexual representation, the role of transwomen in the lesbian community, and other sexual issues arose within the feminist debates known as the feminist sex wars. Opinions on the sex industry are diverse. Feminists are generally either critical of it or supportive of at least parts of it. Sex industry The debate pitted anti-pornography feminism against sex-positive feminism, and parts of the feminist movement were deeply divided by these debates. Pornography PROSTITUTION AND TRAFFICKING Only female sex workers were exploited and sexually abused by the legal system.
Women were forced into physical trafficking. The feminist movement affected change in Western Society including women's suffrage,the right to initiate divorce proceedings and " no fault" divorce.

He advocated women's suffrage for the new government, writing an article for Journal de la Société de 1789. FLORENCE NIGHTINGLE :Women had all the potential of
men but none of the opportunities.
Florence also portrayed the plight that women of talent
