Lena Dunham helped Taylor Swift understand feminism

xtaylor-swift When she was younger, Taylor Swift thought that feminism was something negative, but thanks to Lena Dunham she has come to learn what it actually is and is thankful to the actress who has helped her become a better feminist.

Speaking to The Guardian, Taylor said: “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 love, whereas it’s not about that at all.”

“Becoming friends with Lena – without her preaching to me, but just seeing why she believes what she believes, why she says what she says, why she stands for what she stands for – has made me realize that I’ve been taking a feminist stance without actually saying so,” Swift added.
