Over the last few decades the United States has witnessed a slow, yet steady decline in young women identifying as feminists. In light of the broadened understanding of feminism and its history, this project will explore how feminist identity- primarily the identity of young women- is both nurtured and inhibited inside and outside of the feminist community. Furthermore, I will investigate the trepidation young women experience around feminist identity first within the framework of the twenty-first century, and second within the margins of third wave feminism. Over the course of this research, I have discovered that the trepidation surrounding feminism falls into three distinct categories: the definition of thirdwave feminism, a division among generations of feminists, and misrepresentations of feminism in popular culture and in the media.
