Some pictures from the rally today at Columbia. So much wonderful support for my sister and I! Emma and I are truly grateful to everyone who came, and everyone who was there in spirit.
This honestly makes me so emotional.
Me at parties
Ain’t no party like a feminist party because a feminist party challenges traditional and restrictive thoughts about sex and gender!
On being asked if she is a feminist (in light of stars such as Shailene Woodley and Kelly Clarkson rejecting the label): “I don’t think they really understood what feminism is. It’s a right. Feminism, to me, is standing up for everything that someone else has already done for you. My mom has overcome so much in her life. She makes me want to stand up for myself. Stand up to the studio heads who try to tell me that I can’t have blonde hair; they want brown hair. Or I need bigger boobs, or I need to work out. Or I’m too skinny, so, like, ‘Eat a cheeseburger.’ I stand up for myself every day of my life. I grew up in a family of four boys. I’m, like, a born feminist. I’ve been a feminist since I was four years old.” - Chloe Grace Moretz
Starting a series. It’s not radical to expect your boundaries to be respected, or safety on the streets. It’s not radical to want a good, clear, standard for consent. It’s not radical to want to stop victim blaming. It’s not radical to want to destroy rape culture.
Anti-reproductive health candidates in races across the country have come up with what they think is a brilliant new plan to distract voters from an unpopular fact: they’ve all spent years attacking people’s access to birth control, and this new empty gesture only puts it further out of reach for millions of Americans.
Share the real truth: Taking away no-copay birth control doesn’t cost people less — it costs them more. A LOT more.
