On brosocialists appropaiting the gains of feminism

I see tons of socialists taking credit for the gains of the women’s movement. This is misogynist and incorrect. While it is true the majority of 1st wave feminist women were socialists, this is not true of the 2nd wave, which gained women as a class all the rights we have today. The women of the 2nd wave were a distinct group- feminists! Not socialists, communists, anarchists etc. These women started their own Women’s Liberation Movement because they were sick of the misogyny of men on the left and how they acted as if our concerns do not merit our own movement.
