the roots of feminism date back to ancien Greece, while there are three most known waves, the third of which is the one that is currently rising.
The first wave took place around 1850. In that period, the actions of the suffragettes, the women fighting for their rights, were mostly secret. Their goal was to "gain political power", including the right to vote, and to acquire equality also on an economical level, "equal contract".
The seed was planted that women have the potential to contribute just as much if not more than men.
