Rashida Jones Says 'Don't Treat Feminism As A Dirty Word'

Rashida Jones keeps it chic and sophisticated while attending the 2016 Turner Upfront for her show Angie Tribeca held at The Theater at Madison Square Garden on Wednesday (May 18) in New York City.

The 40-year-old actress was joined at the event by Robot Chicken‘s Breckin Meyer and late night host Conan O’Brien.

The evening before, Rashida and Conan, 53, attended TBS’s A Night Out special panel.

Rashida recently shared her list of dos and don’ts for every feminist via Glamour.

“DON’T treat feminism as a dirty word. The dictionary defines feminism as ‘the advocacy of women’s rights on the grounds of political, social, and economic equality to men.’ It does not mean being a man-hater—it means supporting women as we try to make the world more fair,” Rashida expressed. “Saying ‘I’m not a feminist,’ as my friend Amy Poehler puts it, is ‘like someone being like, ‘I don’t really believe in cars, but I drive one every day, and I love that it gets me places and makes life so much easier and faster and I don’t know what I would do without it.’ As long as there’s systematic discrimination based on gender, we need feminism.”

FYI: Rashida is wearing a Tibi dress and Pierre Hardy shoes at the Upfront. She’s wearing a Tibi top and pants with Pierre Hardy shoes at the party.
