I am soon to be 18, an activist, feminist, artist and a fan by heart. I’ve been passionate about equal rights, specifically feminism, since I was five years young. I plan to minor in women’s studies at college, and am an active participant and moderator in a 19.4k member feminist group on Facebook, where I learn about the lives and struggles of other women, pushing me to learn and help further for ALL women’s (and even men’s) lives.
