We recently came across this video, which was made back in 2006 as part of the documentary I was a Teenage Feminist. Filmmaker, Therese Shechter crossed the country armed with a video camera, an inquiring mind and irreverent sense of humor in the hope of reconnecting to the power and sense of purpose that feminism gave her as a teenager in the 1970’s.

What she found is that the word FEMINIST, which once conjured up a powerful, political movement and sparked social revolution, now evokes discomfort, indifference and even disdain.

Seven years later, we’re not sure much has changed. What’s your definition of the word FEMINIST?
