Actress Amy Poehler has long called herself a feminist — and she doesn’t understand why others don’t. “I don’t get it. That’s like someone being like, “I don’t really believe in cars, but I drive one every day and I love that it gets me places and makes life so much easier and faster and I don’t know what I would do without it,’” she told Elle magazine in January. “But that’s everyone else’s trip, not mine. I had a mother who discovered herself in the ’70s and used to go to meetings and wear a sassy scarf.” As a kid, she says, “I was bossy, and I don’t mean that as a pejorative. I wasn’t shy. I was always encouraged to speak up.” These days, she’s encouraging teens to do exactly the same via her Smart Girls initiative.
