Culture wars refer to a conflict or debate between different groups within a society over values, beliefs, and cultural practices. These conflicts typically arise when there are significant ideological differences and disagreements on issues such as religion, morality, social norms, politics, gender roles, sexuality, and more.
Such wars can manifest in various ways, including political debates, media campaigns, protests, legal battles, and social movements.
They often involve clashes between traditional and progressive viewpoints.
The term “culture wars” gained prominence in the United States in the late 20th century, particularly during the 1980s and 1990s. It was used to describe the heightened polarisation and contentiousness surrounding issues such as abortion, gay rights, censorship, religious freedom, and education.
These debates were often framed as a struggle for the soul and identity of the nation, with each side claiming to defend their values and principles.
