All major American social phenomena, positive and negative, also spread to Germany, albeit in delayed or attenuated form. It started after World War II, with blue jeans, chewing gum, and rock’n roll (which Elvis personally brought over). It continued with divorce, drugs, and reality television. And feminism. But feminism, in particular, proves that trends attenuate by the time they reach Germany, for German women have never embraced feminism as easily as their Anglo-Saxon sisters.
