feminism/ please revise

In Manifesta, Jennifer Baumgardner and Amy Richards, analyze the generation gap between second and third wave feminist. The book begins with a historical development of women's rights and feminism; it provides a perspective from which to view of the past.
The authors believe that other aspects of feminist culture prove that the philosophy is alive and well. They give examples, of magazines like Jane and Sassy and the efforts of countless young women in attempting to radically restructure society. They also show the politics of popular culture and how issues of feminist opposition are addressed in mainstream media.
My favorite chapter, however, was chapter four. In this chapter, they examine the development of the “girlie culture” that the 3rd wave feminism has taken on and passed on to young girls. The use of girl magazines for girls to experiment with make-up and hairstyles, to try and create and identity for themselves is one that I can relate to.
In addition, Richards and Baumgardner, also criticize the wage gap between workers at women and men’s magazines. However, they acknowledge that the internet as an effective 3rd wave tool to empower young girls. This empowerment that the authors try to portray is to encourage women to develop political lives and awareness.
The main idea or theme of Manifesta, in my opinion is "thou shalt not become thy mother" (chapt 7). Although there is a generation gap between 2nd and 3rd wave, however, it also seemed throughout the book that they try to link up the second and third waves, mothers and daughters. A somewhat call for mothers and daughters to unite and resolve intergenerational differences.
