Originally from the small town of Pepper Pike, Ohio, Julie Zeilinger had a big, bold idea to share with the world: what if feminism wasn’t a dirty word anymore? Julie is the founder and editor of The FBomb, a feminist blog and online community for teens and young adults, which she created when she was just 16 years old. Since then, she’s become a leading voice for teen feminists everywhere. It’s no surprise she was named one of Newsweek’s “150 Women Who Shake The World”, one of the “Eight most influential bloggers under 21” by Women’s Day Magazine, and one of Forbes Magazine’s “2016 30 Under 30”. Her writing has appeared in various publications including Forbes, Huffington Post, and CNN, and she managed to author two books before the age of 20: A Little F’d Up: Why Feminism Is Not A Dirty Word (2012) and College 101: A Girl’s Guide to Freshman Year (2014). She is currently the content Strategist at Supermajority. She speaks often and to many. Her Twitter.
