Zosia Mamet: Feminism Is “Not About Running A Fortune 500 Company”

“I think that the term [feminist] has been incredibly bastardized. I am a huge advocate of empowering women — the idea of women supporting each other and supporting themselves and making strong choices that make them happy. I think often feminism gets a very narrow definition. It’s not about making shit-tons of money and running a Fortune 500 company. It’s about doing what makes you feel good as a woman, and if that’s being a stay-at-home mom, you can be just as much of a feminist that way as you can as a fighter pilot. So in that way, yeah, of course.”

It’s a sign of the zeitgeist, I guess, when an otherwise frothy interview with an actress on one of the hottest shows on TV right now turns from face wash and lipstick to feminism? That’s what I choose to believe at least: “Girls” star Zosia Mamet spoke with Allure about makeup tips and fielded a question about whether she calls herself a feminist. Mamet, who writes a column for Glamour, has written a critique of “lean in” feminism before. Her answer was somewhat one-dimensional — I mean, it takes an enormous amount of privilege in the first place to choose to be a stay-at-home mom — but otherwise I solidly agree with Mamet. Women’s equality is about much more than a privileged, elite group of women being financially successful under capitalism. [Allure] [Image via AKM-GSI]

Zosia Mamet At The Glamour Awards

On Tuesday night, while her “Girls” costar Jemima Kirke was recovering from stepping out in her skivvies at the CFDA Awards, Zosia Mamet was standing by on the red carpet for the Glamour Women of the Year Awards. Zosia’s already kind of on my bad side, on account of that stupid Kickstarter campaign she’s started to fund a music video with her sister (for a song they admittedly spent three minutes writing). It’s weird, I am not a fan of rich people trying to get regular people to pay for their pet projects, isn’t that crazy? In any case, this is what Z-dawg wore to the Glamour festivities: not the worst dress ever, but certainly not the most flattering neckline. Plus, something about the color combo and the pattern and its sparkliness reminds me of a ’70s Christmas tree. But maybe that’s just me. What do you think of Zosia’s look?

“Ninety percent of the time when I go on dates, I’m by myself thinking, I could be reading my book instead,” Zosia Mamet, who plays the naive one on “Girls” (and the lesbian-ish one on “Mad Men”), said last week on “Conan.” Oh, honey. We know. We have been there. Oh, have we been there. The next step is that you go on a date and find yourself missing your cat. [Team Coco]
