In which Taylor Swift has a better understanding of feminism than most other celebrities
- Shailene Woodley: No because I love men, and I think the idea of ‘raise women to power, take the men away from the power’ is never going to work out because you need balance.
- Lady Gaga: I’m not a feminist. I hail men, I love men, I celebrate American male culture -- beer, bars, and muscle cars.
- Bjork: [I don't identify as a feminist] because I think it would isolate me. I think it’s important to do positive stuff. It’s more important to be asking than complaining.
- Katy Perry: I used to not really understand what that word meant but now that I do, it just means that I love myself as a female and I also love men. I am woman… Hear me roar!
- Carrie Underwood: I wouldn’t go so far as to say I am a feminist, that can come off as a negative connotation. But I am a strong female.
- Taylor Swift: As a teenager, I didn’t understand that saying you’re a feminist is just saying that you hope women and men will have equal rights and equal opportunities. What it seemed to me, the way it was phrased in culture, society, was that you hate men. And now, I think a lot of girls have had a feminist awakening because they understand what the word means. For so long it’s been made to seem like something where you’d picket against the opposite sex, whereas it’s not about that at all.
