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.
As far as I know, Third Wave feminism has done quite a lot for women from underprivileged groups (minority women, gay women, etc.), and that's definitely something, in my opinion.
