The Stars Of “Broad City” Are Feminists

Claire Hannum / June 28, 2014

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]
