Kaitlyn is a 16 year old junior at Massabesic High School. She wants others to feel comfortable with who they are and the same for herself. Kaitlyn is always singing and playing with all her animals. She has been in GAB for three years. Growing up in a more conservative town has fueled Kaitlyn’s passion for feminism. She thinks that GAB is a great way for young women to teach the younger generation about how to believe in themselves and stand up to cause a Ruckus!
Favorite book: We Should All Be Feminists by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
Woman (dead or alive) to have dinner with: Emma Watson
Favorite feminist anthem: Truth Hurts by Lizzo
Favorite place to go on a feminist rant: In the middle of class to educate my peers about what feminism REALLY is.
Perfect day (in one sentence): Spending a day with my family without having to worry about anything at all.
How are you making a ruckus? Voicing my opinion in my community and joining other groups/organizations that share my beliefs so we can continue to make change. Also, creating conversations between opposing viewpoints so there is room for each side to learn and understand each others’ experiences and backgrounds.
