So late in putting this up, but had to share my favorite new picture! Incredibly honored to have won a Planned Parenthood Maggie Award with some of my favorite women: Zerlina Maxwell, Janet Mock & Irin Carmon.
Beyoncé, in the midst of an epic 15 minute medley at Sunday night’s MTV Video Music awards, performed her song “Flawless” in front of a giant screen blazoned with the word “FEMINIST”. And, as in her music video, the superstar sampled author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s speech on feminism and expectations for girls.
The zeitgeist is irrefutably feminist: its name literally in bright lights.
The guy asking to “play devil’s advocate” in a conversation about feminism really just wants permission to be an asshole.
