The Stars Of “Broad City” Are Feminists

Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer, the brilliant comedic duo behind “Broad City,” chose not to join the ranks of female stars who dodge the f-word, and I love them for it. When asked by PopSugar at the Critics’ Choice Television awards whether they’re “cool with” the word feminist, Jacobson graciously responded:

“I would totally say I’m a feminist. I don’t find it to be negative at all.”

Glazer chimed in with Jaocbson to agree:

“I feel like a feminist is gender equality. You know, we’re feminists… the people who work on the show are feminists.”

The interview, which is totally worth a watch just to see the pair’s BFF dynamic in action, also delves into binge-watching, the New York City comedy scene, and the secret life of Amy Poehler. I also find it comforting that they have the habit of dropping the word “like” as much as I do. These ladies rock! [Huffington Post]
