Feminism's Third Wave? Fourth Wave?

Michelle, Our Belle

"At first glance, it may seem that the feminist movement took a major blow with Clinton's primary loss, but a deeper look may spotlight a different female voice emerging, one that is personified by our incoming first lady. A Cum Laude graduate of Princeton University and holder of a Juris Doctor from Harvard Law School, Michelle Obama is hardly a woman who struggles with proving herself in a "man's world." Yet she has demonstrated over and over that by harnessing our feminine strength as the nurturing hubs of our families and communities, we wield a genuine power that has the simultaneous ability to inspire and affect (as her husband has admitted many times) even the decisions of our President."
