“I think our generation has taken our rights for granted,” Elisabeth shared.

“The idea that they would be taken away didn’t occur to us for a very long time,” Elisabeth added. “And I think that for sure there’s a rise in my generation of feminism. The wave is coming back as we’re faced with things being taken away from us that we thought we would always have – reproductive rights and all that. For me I’ve definitely become more aware and more active in the last few years.”
