The first wave of feminism emerged in the 19th and early 20th centuries, the second wave emerged in the 1960s and 1970s, and the third wave continues from the 1990s until today. Feminist theory emerged from the feminist movement. It is reflected in disciplines as diverse as feminist geography, feminist history, and feminist literary criticism. Pre-colonial social structures and the role of women in these structures show that feminist thought in India was different from that in the West. The colonial emphasis on “Indian culture” and the construction of Indian women as the epitome of culture through cultural change led to the goals of not only feminism but also politics. Despite this "paper" progress, there are many significant problems that prevent the use of all these new rights and opportunities. For example, the Constitution of India also states that women are the "weaker section" of the population and therefore need assistance in discharging the above-mentioned equal responsibilities.
