“As a teenager, I didn’t understand that saying you’re a feminist is just saying that you hope women and men will have equal rights and equal opportunities. What it seemed to me, the way it was phrased in culture, society, was that you hate men. And now, I think a lot of girls have had a feminist awakening because they understand what the word means. For so long it’s been made to seem like something where you’d picket against the opposite sex, whereas it’s not about that at all. Becoming friends with Lena – without her preaching to me, but just seeing why she believes what she believes, why she says what she says, why she stands for what she stands for – has made me realise that I’ve been taking a feminist stance without actually saying so.”

"Real life is a funny thing, you know.In real life, saying the right thing at the rightmoment is beyond crucial. So crucial, in fact, that most of us start to hesitant for fear ofsaying the wrong thing at the wrong time.But lately what I’ve begun to fear more than thatis letting the moment pass without sayinganything. I think you deserve to look back on your life without this chorus of resounding voicessaying, ‘I could’ve but it’s too late now’. So there’s a time for silence, and there’s a time for waiting your turn. But if you know how you feel,and you so clearly know what you need to say,you’ll know it. I don’t think you should wait.I think you should speak now." -Taylor Swift
