Hole's album Live Through This expresses a standpoint that may articulate a third-wave feminist consciousness. However, as a work that critiques the masculine discourses of our society through an ironic performance of gender, it has the potential for reinscribing the very hegemonic ideology it seeks to resist. This analysis leads me to question epistemic privilege and argue that third wave feminism's tenet of individualism represents an appropriation of feminism under the regime of late capitalism.
