1st Wave – opportunity to work
Some of 2nd Wave – opportunity at work
3rd Wave – supremacy everywhere, free stuff, forced outcomes

Victorian women: we are as virtuous as men, we deserve a chance. (ok)
Edwardian women: we work as hard as men, let us. (ok)

Every one after: goodness isn’t real, we won’t conform to your expectations, don’t compare us to men.

1. Be civil. 2. Be logical or fair. 3. Do not bore me.
