10 Young Feminists, We Should Be Aware of.

It comes to feminism and activism, are often same name: sure, Lena Dunham and co are great – but there are still so many other people who discover is worthwhile. Here are so nine young women and a * e transgendered is worth noticing.

Caitlin Stasey (actress)

Caitlin Stasey is best known for her role as a sexy lady-in-waiting Kenna in the series reign. Reign is behind it but long Stasey – as well as their willingness to make compromises. She wants to be not the sexy-looking, simple young woman who willingly photographed in lingerie for an interview can be. Instead, Stasey speaks publicly about sexism in the movie industry and stretches out on their own terms, namely for their Web page Herself.com. Returns the ubiquitous gauze male a site by women for women. Whether by vegan diet or bosom Blitzer on Instagram: Caitlin Stasey in their very own way wants to make this world better. NEMI El-Hassan (poetry was and activist) NEMI El-Hassan in January 2015 virtually overnight nationwide was known – and all this thanks to AfD and co! Well, something like. El-Hassan attended “open and colorful” event in Dresden – a protest against the Pegida movement. Before a huge audience strode onto the stage the Berlin medicine student and started with her poetry slam: “fear, fear, fear. The world is afraid, afraid of Germany”. Since then, El-Hassan is almost relentlessly on the move, to liberate Germany from his fear of the supposedly foreign. This makes them in the form of columns, slams, lectures or together with a collective co-founded by her date offender. The latter want to enlighten with humor about how Muslims are now really and turn regularly entertaining ironic videos – for example about the so-called ‘Islamic State’ or the Ramadan for this. As if all this were not enough, El-Hassan on Facebook writes still thoughtful and thought-provoking lyrics: about what it’s like to live as a headscarf-wearing Muslim in Germany or suddenly an expert to be considered terrorism and women’s oppression. Elizabeth plank (journalist)

If the Canadian journalist is not just the feminist mother-in-law dream Justin Trudeau to the interview, she deals with the concerns and needs of “Millenials” or prices takes flip the script for their online series, dealing with issues such as feminism, anti Islamism, and homophobia. Liz Plank is funny, smart and telegenic. Her new project is called 2016ish: A series, in which the journalist is engaged in the upcoming US election. Transgender Rights, gender pay gap or Donald Trump – plank takes care of all these issues and gives people a voice that much too often not heard. Entertaining, but always informative.

Amandla Stenberg (actress and activist)

The hunger games series know many Amandla Stenberg as small Rue in the first part. Since then, the actress has grown up, the British dazed Magazine she explained to “one of the most incendiary voices of her generation” by 2015. Indeed, Stenberg has to say a lot about cultural appropriation. Again and again she indicates how white people acquire such as African-American hairstyles and these apply this suddenly as cool – but only because they wear white. Listen well, Kylie Jenner. Another important theme for Stenberg is intersectionality, so multiple discrimination: A black woman experienced discrimination differently when a white, a lesbian woman is discriminated against in a different way than a heterosexual. Stenberg themselves refer to as non-binary and bisexual. Bethany Cosentino (musician)

To play in a cool indie-rock band, the dream of many is safe and seen Bethany Cosentino has pulled the big prize: since 2009 she is as a singer, songwriter and guitarist member of the band best coast. What is rather not so dreamy are the harassment and sexist comments that Cosentino must grapple as a lead singer. At some point it was enough Cosentino – she wrote an angry essay for Lena Dunhams Lenny newsletter: “I recently read a review that mostly lauded a best Coast show – it specified how great the band sounded and how ‘sexy’ I looked – but it bemoaned my lack of smiling.” (…) “This reviewer’s gendered critique of my presence onstage revealed how he thought a woman who he saw as”sexy”should behave.” If more women denounce these abuses, from Cosentino is convinced, that makes other courage to do the same. Silence is not always Golden.

Jessica Williams (actress and stand up comedian)

Only tender 22 years the first African American woman in the so-called “Rapporteur” the moderator John Stewart Williams was old, and also when they hired the daily show -, (since September 2015: Trevor Noah) support. Beginning July 2016 Williams announced her exit from the show, and we all need to do now without their hilarious, but always relevant deposits. Deposits, in which among other things in the world was able to Williams, that Beyoncé black and Catcalling is not a compliment. Who knew! Until it starts new project Williams – she developed its own series for the channel Comedy Central – remains still, their Podcast 2 Dope Queens to listen the she Robinson hosts with the also unique Phoebe (seriously, the only reason why anybody left this series look Shonda Rhimes – sorry, are probably Robinsons scandal recaps). Jack Monroe (activist * in) Jack Monroe’s career began quite unglamourös: no school, working in a French bar and a fire station – and even a baby. To combine work with child, was impossible for Monroe, the working hours (and bosses) were too inflexible. What followed was unemployment and poverty. And then, a good idea: Monroe started the blog A girl Called Jack (later: cooking on a bootstrap) to write, shared cheap recipes – recipes on it, invented the Monroe as single parents * r with a small child. At some point, Monroe got a column in the guardian, and wrote several cookbooks. The experience with poverty have deeply shaped Monroe: Monroe supports today, including Oxfam and child poverty action group. by 2015, Monroe outed publicly as transgender. Monroe wrote in the guardian in may 2016: “I’m a little bit female and a little bit male”. Monroe does not see himself as a ‘Leader’: “I don’t consider myself a leader.” I live my life and do what I love and feel strongly about, and every now and again when I around there are turn people behind me helping me on. I am here, writing and talking about this at last, because I stood on the shoulders of giants, those pioneers who have gone before me and pushed for these conversations (…) “.” Penelope Kemekenidou (activist) things that many people don’t know, episode 3648: in Germany we pay 19% tax on tampons – while on the other, necessary for daily use products only account for 7 per cent (salmon caviar includes amongst other things, totally logical,). The Munich activist Penelope Kemekenidou was unfair: started a petition to reduce the tampon tax. In France, a similar campaign was already successful. In addition Kemekenidou also fights against the so-called “pink tax”: products are often completely unnecessary gegendert – pink razors, anyone? -the female version costs more than the male. Also want to Kemekenidou stigma the topic of menstruation and is committed with stop against the sexism of the BILD-Zeitung image sexism. Tess Holliday (model and activist)

“Plus Model / Mom / Feminist” is Tess hollidays Instagram profile and so much important, but not everything about the American would be said. 2013 Italian Vogue named her one of the “top 6 plus size models” in the world. by 2015, Holliday signed with milk model management, making them the worst plus-size model, which was taken from a mainstream modeling agency under contract. Holliday body is covered with tattoos and she has no problem to show just this overweight, Bacon complement-body nude – she prefer even defined what is beauty to tell than others, as she has to look. Holliday diversity advocates, when it comes to body shape and appearance: 2013 the movement launched #effyourbeautystandards on Instagram. Holliday speaks of himself as “fat” and has no problem with the often-criticized term “Plus-Size”. On Instagram, she writes: “just because we’re plus size, doesn’t mean we have to prove that we’re healthy, just as someone who is smaller than US or average size doesn’t have to prove they are healthy.” We should be able to exist in our bodies. “I am the technically healthy but my body is no more valid than someone’s who isn’t.”

Sarah Maple

As the British-Iranian artist Sarah Maple a painting called “the opposite of a feminist is an Arshole” presented, she was charming in response from a real asshole – an image. Maple itself can only laugh. Criticism of her work is they used to: as the daughter of a white British and a Muslim Iranian woman she deals in their photos and paintings with religion, penises, menstruation and hairy armpits. Maple evaluates what it now means to be – a woman and even one with a Muslim Catholic background. She even says: “I always found it difficult culturally knowing where I fit in.” Their art reflects these back spells: a hijab wearing, smoking woman (Maple itself) graces the cover of her latest book. One of her paintings nude shows Maple covered breasts and vulva with the inscription “Using my intelligence”. But the artist not confined to photography and painting, held also performances (E.g. in the form of the “anti-rape-cloak”) and rotating videos (E.g. “keeping up with the Kapulets”). 2015 Maple won a sky Academy Art scholarship of 30,000 euros – she want to use it to focus the theme of freedom of speech in their art.
