I simply hadn’t noticed! It seems that the ‘fourth wave’ of feminism (or should that be ‘feminism’) is much the same as the third wave, except even more lacking in political and structural analysis, and even more invested in the magical power of choosy-choices, plus this esoteric thing called ‘agency’, which is so powerful, it can negate a woman’s political and social reality, but at the same time, so fragile the mere opinions of radical feminists can destroy it!
On the liberal side, one of the tenets of the fourth wave of feminism, which is just starting to crest, is that women should not criticise one another’s life choices. Rather, every lifestyle, every fashion choice is acceptable because they all reflect a woman’s freedom of choice, whether it’s going out in one’s underwear (Slutwalk) or, well, being a princess. This kind of open-ended tolerance is all well and good, except when it then results in people attacking another woman for expressing an opinion about an industry that exploits their own, as invariably happens when a woman discusses, say, Page 3 girls or strip clubs.
