Summary of the text
A historical recording of feminist issues occurs place in various rhythms and time loops according to linguistic conventions, political contexts and social environments. The purpose of this paper is to examine the notion of“the now” from the perspective of various forms of feminist chronologies, which often adopt either the conventional developmental taxonomy of the linear construction of time or the formation of a dominant metanarrative of feminist history that accepts exclusionary historiographic processes, despite the tendencies of multidimensional and thematic treatment of feminisms. Keywords: history, feminism, temporality, feminist waves, polytemporality, narration
