Ellen Page: “Why Are People So Reluctant to Say They’re Feminists?”

Ellen Page: “Why Are People So Reluctant to Say They’re Feminists?”

“But in America, where certain politicians have about as much understanding of the realities of women’s biology and contraceptive needs as a dung beetle, the issue of how much control a woman is allowed to have over her own body remains anachronistically fraught.”

 This article about an interview with Ellen Page was supposed to talk about her upcoming film but instead (and more interestingly) focuses on her role as an outspoken feminist and advocate for equal rights.  Originally from Canada, Ellen Page fearlessly maintains her convictions with regards to political subjects that can sometimes be taboo in the USA–most notably, women’s reproductive health.
