Taylor Swift Talks Feminism and Misogyny in Maxim

May 20, 2015 2 min read

Having just been named number one on Maxim's annual top 100 list, Taylor Swift used the accompanying interview in the magazine to talk about her friends and the heavyweight topics of feminism and misogyny. swift_zpsbb16a70c In reference to her avoidance of feminism early in her career, Swift said, "Honestly, I didn't have an accurate definition of feminism when I was younger. I didn't quite see all the ways that feminism is vital to growing up in the world we live in... I think that when I used to say, 'Oh, feminism's not really on my radar,' it was because when I was just seen as a kid, I wasn't as threatening. I didn't see myself being held back until I was a woman." SWIFT-master675-v2 Swift also went to town in attacking the "double standards in headlines" and "double standards in the way things are perceived." "A man writing about his feelings from a vulnerable place is brave; a woman writing about her feelings from a vulnerable place is oversharing or whining," Swift said. "Misogyny is ingrained in people from the time they are born. So to me, feminism is probably the most important movement that you could embrace, because it's just basically another word for equality."

"If that's not feminism, what is?" Sure sounds like feminism to me. h/t: Rolling Stone
