QU: Concise Source on History of Feminism

I'm looking for a concise (article rather than book length) overview of the history of feminism (okay if it's primarily European/U.S. focused) for an interdisciplinary course that will draw students from various academic backgrounds. Everything I have found online is too simplisitc and follows an unproblemtized "wave" chronology. I'm looking for something that gives students a general idea of feminism as a capacious set of ideas and movements.

Any suggestions would be most appreciated!
