Description:

This paper examines the theory of social constructionism inherent within the women's rights movements of the 1960s and 1970s. The paper first discusses the first wave of feminism from the early 1800's to the 1920s. The paper then examines the causes and factors that led to and shaped the women's rights movements of the 1960s and 1970s.

From the Paper:

"Throughout the short history of the United States there have been many class conflicts that derived from a rebellion against the social constructs of our society. Sociology teaches us to look not at the individuals within these conflicts, but within the society itself, and how its constructs, mores, traditions and rules have spurred men and women into rebellion against them. A true example of the theories of social constructionism and conflict theory colliding into a rebellion against the norm of our society, is the situation of the second wave feminist movement during the 1960's and 1970's in the United States."
