Jenny Slate Has The Perfect Answer To The Feminism Question
When it comes to feminism, "Obvious Child" star, actress and "Saturday Night Live" alumna doesn't hesitate to add her name to the list.
"Am I a feminist? F--k yeah, I'm a feminist," she said in a recent sit-down with MTV News. "I think that unfortunately people who are maybe threatened by feminism think that it's about setting your bra on fire and being aggressive, and I think that's really wrong and really dangerous."
Slate, whose latest movie follows her stand-up comedian character as she meets a guy, has an unplanned pregnancy and deals with the consequences of that, agreed that her movie is a feminist work, and offered strong advice about how to change the male-skewed gender gap in Hollywood.
