Since the turn of the 20th century, when the term "feminist" was first used, much attention has been paid to women's concerns. With the First Wave Feminist movement of the early 1900s, the road was paved for the Second Wave feminists of the late 1960s and 70s, the Third Wave, post-feminists in the 1980s, and the anti-victim feminists who would emerge during the 1990s. Yet, for all the public attention given to, and all the academic scholarship written about women's issues, little research has been conducted with Deaf women and their exposure to feminism. In order to understand more fully how feminists and feminism are viewed among women in the American Deaf community, and how such concepts and identities differ from such perspectives held by American hearing women, an interview-based examination of these issues and identities has been conducted, grounded in everyday participation within the Deaf community.
