[68] Andi Zeisler, author of We Were Feminists Once

“Is it going to harm feminism as a whole if you continue consuming R. Kelly albums? No, but it’s also an opportunity to interrogate how women consumers don’t have many options and so we see ourselves through the pop culture products that are overwhelming created by white men.” – Andi Zeisler

Andi Zeisler is the cofounder of Bitch Media. Her writing has appeared in Ms., Mother Jones, Salon, Bust, the San Francisco Chronicle, and the Washington Post. She is the author of Feminism and Pop Culture and We Were Feminists Once and speaks frequently throughout the United States.
