Take Note Nicki: 10 Famous Feminists Who Use Their Platforms To Uplift Other Women

- By

Issa Rae

She’s already let it be known she’s rooting “for everybody black,” but actress/writer/creator Issa Rae should also add women to the list of people she regularly cheers for. Through her highly successful series Insecure, Rae shows the awkwardness of a woman trying to navigate her 30s while attempting to dodge life’s hurdles. However, the series also shows the importance of the strong bonds of female friendship, particularly as it relates to the characters of Issa and Molly.

While speaking on a college campus panel, Rae explicitly stated the driving force behind Insecure…and it lies with women. “It’s a show centered around two black female friends,” Rae said. “Black women are essential to my life, and any time I have a chance to work with them, support them, I’m there.”
