Just because a girl can hang, doesn’t mean she’s not a girl anymore, and doesn’t sometimes want girl stuff. Where Beyoncé, Miley, Katy, Rihanna and their compatriots are promoting an equally valid but forceful “free to do what I want to” kind of feminism, Lewis is speaking to a more moderate, realistic version of everyday feminism where women are trying to find a balance between the old and the new. Both versions are valid, but Lewis is doing the leg work to prove that more than one kind of feminism can succeed in the image-obsessed, sex-crazed world of music.
—  Jenny Lewis’ new video is exactly what feminism in music should be … It also features Kristen Stewart and Anne Hathaway in drag 

I think you have to fight to be successful. All we can do [as women] is keep working and creating good stuff and putting it out there and not being afraid to take on the hard work. You get past it if you take risks.

Jenny Lewis
