In February, a group of HCWC interns had the pleasure of speaking with Jessica Valenti, Founder of Feministing.com. We asked Jessica questions about the events in her life that have led her to be a feminist, an activist, and the creator of a successful blog website. Because Jessica has also written several books that draw attention to feminism, women’s sexuality, and parenting we knew she would be a fantastic source of information about the different avenues of feminism any person could take over the course of their life. The advice she shares in this video was part of that conversation. We hope it encourages further dialogue within our extended community about what feminism is, what feminist activism can be, and, of course, what it means to be a feminist today.
Tell us: What makes you a feminist?
Jessica is currently a fellow at the Berkman Center for Internet and Society at Harvard University.
