Geena Davis – Feminist

Geena Davis in response to the question What do you think it means to be a feminist?

“I always say the definition of a feminist in the dictionary is the belief in equal rights for women socially and economically. The media conspired to make it so much bigger and less attractive than what it really is. With that definition, there shouldn’t be any American who would say I’m not a feminist. If you asked anybody if they believe women should have equal rights, who is going to say no? Unfortunately, it’s the word that’s gotten such a bad rap and I always try to bring it back to its humble definition.”
