Power Women Summit: Model and activist explains what feminism means to her and how she uses her social media platform to talk politics
In a time when the word “feminism” and its meaning is being widely debated, model and activist Emily Ratajkowski says “feminism is great for everyone” while “misogyny is bad for everyone.” She argued at TheWrap’s Power Women Summit in Los Angeles on Friday that everyone should be working together in the fight for equality, also saying that ideas about gender limit men almost just as much as women.
“I don’t want to live in a world like that, and I think it’s important to accept men,” Ratajkowski said, insisting that men also need a seat at the table on women’s rights issues. “Maybe they need to let us be the main voices, but I’m happy for them to show up and be a part of this conversation because it’s impacting them as well. I feel the same way about Black Lives Matter: We have an insane problem in our country with the police force, and I feel I need to get behind it… if I don’t, who will?”
