"In my experience, whenever you take a stand for what you believe, there will always be people who disagree with you. That's especially true, I think, for women. So please know that you're in good company. Believe me, every strong woman you admire who has worked to make our world a fairer place has faced opposition along the way."—Hillary Clinton, responding to a question from a teenage girl who is "being harassed by male classmates for being a feminist," during a terrific interview with Rookie magazine.
I highly recommend reading the whole thing. It's so good.
And I defy anyone to read this interview and tell me that electing a woman president doesn't matter.
