About this event

Join the NWHM on Sunday, December5th at 3:00pm EDT for a special guest curator-led virtual walkthrough of our upcoming exhibit, Feminism: The Fourth Wave.

While there is no agreed upon “start” to the so-called “fourth wave of feminism,” its beginnings are often loosely affiliated with the early 2000s when the popularization of social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube allowed for online advocacy campaigns to reach mass audiences and make significant cultural impacts. Technological advancements also enabled digital methods for organizing in recent years, becoming an important module for fourth wave feminists to meet and plan acts of activism online, as well as discuss and debate feminist discourse. Activists today continue to work on many of the same issues as their predecessors—equal pay, reproductive rights, and sexual assault, for example—but with the innovative tools of the digital age at their disposal. While much fourth wave activism continues to take place both on the Internet (#MeToo, Time’s Up, and the “Believe Women” campaigns) and on the street (Women’s Marches), it’s largely conceived and disseminated online, making social media platforms a powerful tool in the fourth wave era.

The National Women’s History Museum strives to provide programs that are accessible to all visitors. For questions, or to request accommodations such as an ASL interpreter or captioning, please email history@womenshistory.org at least 7 days in advance of the program.
