Progressive feminism is a term associated with a sociopolitical movement in the latter half of the 20th century, focused around a moderate, center-right approach to women's rights. The progressive feminist movement, also referred to as the "conservative feminist" or "moderate feminist" theory, reached its apex under the Presidency of Elizabeth Shannon and the sexual harassment political scandals that marred the nation in the late 1990's.

The movement did much to distance itself from "radical feminism" and the ideas on women's rights espoused by the left-wing of the women's rights movement, often trying to describe its ideals as ones that "all women can agree upon" and as ideas that make women equal to men, but not a threat to men. The power of the progressive feminist movement is often credited with the election of Elizabeth Shannon, and she in turn is credited with bringing about the celebrated civil rights victories of the 1980's in the realm of women's and minorities' rights.
