I think what Midnightsfire means is that taking into account how many years there has been a feminist movement around, most of their achievements stopped right around the time women were allowed to vote and own property. Even if lawmakers consider themselves feminist, most of them don't work purposefully towards reforms that only include the advancement of women. Second Wave feminism did focus much more on social research about gender and gender roles, but I don't think Third Wave feminism has done much in any of these respects at all.
