“Feminism” has been a shapeshifting word. For a while, the word evoked the bra-burning stereotype from the 1960s. And now it seems that feminism is all about not forcing gender stereotypes on girls or boys as addressed in Emma Watson’s #HeForShe campaign.

And it turns out, a lot of folks don’t share a common definition. This thought-provoking 4-minute video shows women age 5 to 50, trying to give “Feminism” a definition in one word. Check it out and let us know what’s yours.

Lucy Ross | Editor-in-Chief

I went to NYU for Film & TV and had the entrepreneur’s spirit since being a tot when I contracted chores out to my older sister for a profit (ha!). I run Hello Lucy Design (a web management and design biz) full time as well as Editorial Direction for LikeABossGirls.com. As a full-of-energy go-getter, my motto is “Why the heck not?”. I'm a mid-western girl who has worked for the BBC in London, Nickelodeon in NYC, and Jazz Aspen Snowmass in Colorado. One of my proudest accomplishments was serving as Co-Director for three consecutive years for the Fusion Film Festival of NYU, celebrating women in film, TV, and new media.
