Hairstylist Sapna Bhavnani Tells Cosmo What Makes Her a Feminist

"Feminists aren't Man-Haters"

"The one quote that defines feminism best is, 'It's not who's going to let me, it's who's going to stop me'. Ever since I was a child, this whole idea of permission really bothered me.

There's no male-bashing, feminists aren't man-haters. Most people think that feminists are either gay or they don't really like men. I mean, I love men, and I've been married to many. And I'll love many more. But I should be able to do what I want, and that makes me a feminist."
