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

Amandla Stenberg

Young actress Amandla Stenberg continues to prove that age ain’t nothing but a number when it comes to voicing her support of other women. In her short career, she has used her platform numerous times to speak out on the discrimination and injustices facing women in Hollywood and throughout the country.

She’s been called a vital young voice of the future and with good reason. In an eye-opening interview in 2016 where she herself interviewed feminist icon Gloria Steinem, Stenberg spoke about her feminism as it relates to her specific gender identity:

“I never did not identify as a feminist, but I didn’t know where I belonged because I didn’t see myself represented. As I started to explore my gender identity, I didn’t know how I could claim the title of feminist without subscribing to the gender binary. I thought I had to be a proud woman to be a feminist. Then I came to the realization that I can be proud of women without necessarily identifying as one. A lot of people are rejecting the binary—that’s the future of feminism.”
