Five Questions with Chelsea
Favorite book: Le Petit Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
Woman (dead or alive) to have dinner with: Right now, Roxane Gay, the writer of Bad Feminist
Favorite feminist anthem: “Boys Wanna Be Her” by Peaches, because what could be more feminist than boys shamelessly having female heroes?
Favorite place to go on a feminist rant: I’m really not the ranting type, but a close relative’s home has become a hot spot for heated discussions haha
Perfect day (in one sentence): A day of being unplugged, making artwork, and spending time with close friends.
