"The idea that success isn't dependant on gender—that's feminism. To be able to express yourself freely, outside the confines of societal norms, those things come to mind first and foremost.

I think the biggest feminist fight begins at the level of education—to raise children and educate them as equals, so they grow up with that as the foundation for how they live."
