Amy Schumer is Proud to Be a Feminist & Email Gloria Steinem

Amy Schumer keeps it cute while stopping to pose at a photo call for her hit film Trainwreck during the 2015 Locarno Film Festival on Saturday (August 8) in Locarno, Switzerland.

The 34-year-old actress/comedian opened up about being a feminist during the press conference.

“I’m proud to be a feminist. I think everybody in this room is proud to be a feminist,” Amy said (via Variety). “I’ve just got an email from Gloria Steinem. I still cannot believe I’m in a position to communicate with her.”

As for the movie, Amy said, “I think people were surprised to see it’s a love story. And the film’s about her character finally gaining a sense of self-respect, that she’s worthy enough to be loved.”
