YOUR FAVE FEMINISTS AREN’T FEMINISTS

Lena Dunham and Amy Schumer are women that the media love to call feminists and magazines can’t get enough of when talking about female empowerment and powerful women in media. And although they talk about feminism a lot (Dunham even has a feminist newsletter), here’s […]
