Is Michelle Obama a Feminist? May 13, 2007Posted by Liz in feminism, Michelle Obama.
Interestingly, right after our conversation about how most women/ women at [AC] would never define themselves as feminists, I found Michelle Obama’s answer to the same question.
“You know, I’m not that into labels,” Obama said. “So probably, if you laid out a feminist agenda, I would probably agree with a large portion of it,” she said. “I wouldn’t identify as a feminist just like I probably wouldn’t identify as a liberal or a progressive.”
Clearly Obama, too, feels the pressure of the current taboo against identifying oneself as a feminist.
In other news, Hilary Clinton does in fact call herself a feminist.
