Hillary Clinton Answers Lena Dunham's Questions, Confirms She's 'Absolutely' a Feminist

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton sat down for an interview with Lena Dunham for her new digital newsletter Lenny.

“You are a woman with so many accomplishments and so many interests and you were uniting with someone who was clearly heading toward the public eye in such a specific way,” Lena asked Hillary at one point “Did you have anxiety about that—about the concept of losing your own identity in the process of joining forces with someone who clearly had political ambitions?”

Hillary reveals that she turned down Bill Clinton‘s marriage proposals two separate times!

Hillary was also asked if she was a feminist, to which she responded, “I’m always a little bit puzzled when any woman of whatever age, but particularly a young woman, says something like, ‘well, I believe in equal rights but I’m not a feminist.’ Well, a feminist is by definition someone who believes in equal rights. I’m hoping that people will not be afraid to say, that doesn’t mean you hate men, it doesn’t you want to separate out the world, so you’re not a part of ordinary life — that’s not what it means at all! It just means that we believe that women have the same rights as men.”

Lenny will launch officially on September 29.

    “a feminist is by definition someone who believes in equal rights.”

    That is the slogan, not the definition. A feminist works to improve things for women, regardless of anything else. Further, regardless of how good or bad things are, a feminist also pushes rigid gender roles.

    Indeed, to stand for gender equality, a person must oppose feminism.

    Gender equality has more than one side. And if you’re paying attention it also has more than two sides. It’s not about women. It’s about all of us, and it’s time to take this issue back.
