Abstract

This research explores the current directions of the U.S. Women's Movement and the beliefs encompassed by 21st century feminism through a study of participant rally signs displayed at the 2020 Women's March on Washington. Currently, there is much ambiguity surrounding the values for which feminism stands and further contestation about whether a U.S. Women's Movement exists at all. This study examines public feminist activism in an established social rally to extrapolate goals of the present women's agenda and underlying manifestations of feminist philosophy. Through analysis of personal messages and examination of feminist directions, further implications concerning rational dialogue and understanding amid international diversification can be drawn, extending beyond academia for practical application and a move towards social equity.
