Fearless Female Interview: Katiee

Who is a female that inspires you?

A female that inspires me is Gloria Steinem. She’s a feminist author, who has been fighting for equality pretty much her entire life; she inspires me because I’m aspiring to be like her.

 

What does a fearless female look like to you?

A fearless female is someone who is not afraid to be herself.

 

Why do you think it's important to see more women in leadership positions?

I think that seeing more women in leadership roles is important because it shows that we can be leaders, we do have voices, we are amazing.

 

Why is it important to encourage girls and women to pursue fields stereotypically dominated by men?

It’s important because they can do it! Woman can take over the world. If you want to be an engineer, do it. If you want to be a ballerina, do it. We can do anything.

 

How does being a fearless female benefit you and bring you closer to your goals?

I think that being a fearless female helps me with my blog. I use my pen as my sword to write about equality and spread awareness to problems like rape culture and toxic masculinity. Using my voice makes me fearless.

 

What advice would you give to young girls about being a fearless female or women struggling to recognize their power?

You can do anything you set your mind to. You are powerful and amazing, without a doubt. Believe in yourself, and be your own best friend. Love yourself, you are beautiful. By doing so, you’ll find your voice in this world.

 

What makes a feminist in your eyes?

A feminist is someone who believes in quality between the genders; that we all deserve an equal chance.

 

How do you work to make your feminism intersectional?

My feminism is intersectional because it is inclusive. My feminism includes transgender humans, as well as humans of any color. I use feminism to spread positivity and love.

 

How can women and girls support each other in today's world?

Spread all the good vibes with each other. Lift each other up instead of competing, and love each other every day.
