How to Be a Feminist in 2017

October 3rd, 2017

Back in August we sat down with former political advisor Naomi Wolf to talk about what we should be doing during a non-election year, and her insights were truly eye-opening. Naomi’s formidable resume extends beyond just politics — she’s also a New York Times best-selling author. Her 1990 book, The Beauty Myth, is considered a new feminist classic. As a journalist, she’s bravely addressed issues like abortion, ISIS, Edward Snowden, and the Occupy Wallstreet Movement. These days she’s paving the way for civic action on the internet with her website Daily Clout. As an all female team of journalists ourselves, we were more than excited to sit down with Naomi and talk about what it means to be a feminist in 2017. According to her, the internet is actually one of the best places we can be doing good work for women’s rights. Scroll down to discover Naomi’s insights on modern day feminism and how we can help each other as women. Ladies, it’s time to tighten our ponytails and get things done!

    This piece feels so timely and relevant. As women’s reproductive health is being challenged, sexual harassment and assault are coming to surface yet still being met with some distrust and denial, and female political candidates are criticized for irrelevant qualities, something we’ve missed is the emotional impact which can result in physical impact: trauma. I can’t wait until everyone celebrates women’s liberation.

    I so appreciate Naomi’s calm, authentic, and inspired voice. She’s not naive, but has hope. Thank you for this post.

    P.S. Who makes the top in the first photo (blush/mauve)?
