In the second segment, Ashley interviews Aparna Parthasarathy, a rising high school senior and advocate for human rights. Aparna shares her perspectives on a wide range of feminist topics, including women’s experiences impacted by colonialism and globalization, how to address women’s issues, and what Gen Z offers to the feminist movement.
