When writer Roxane Gay dubbed herself a "bad feminist," she was making a joke, acknowledging that she couldn't possibly live up to the demands for perfection of the feminist movement. But she realized that the joke rang hollow. In this thoughtful, provocative and funny TED talk, she asks us to embrace all flavours of feminism - and make the small choices that, en masse, might lead to actual change. Gay calls on feminists to demand accountability from a world that degrades women in many ways, both in public and in private life, and especially through mass-produced pop culture.
