The more I spoke about feminism, the more I realized that fighting for women’s rights has too often become synonymous with man-hating. If there is one thing I know for certain is that this has to stop. For the record, feminism by definition is the belief that men and women should have equal rights and opportunities. It is the theory of political, economic and social equality of the sexes. […] You might think: who is this Harry Potter girl? What is she doing at the UN? I’ve been asking myself at the same thing. All I know is that I care about this problem and I want to make this better. And having seen what I’ve seen and given the chance, I feel my responsibility to say something.

Fifty bumble bees tap on my window and tell me a story
And dance in circles to say where they come from
With insect leg compasses.
The sound of flight is deafening because it is deaf
And I begin to feel through the stripes.
They leave pollen tracks on my shingles to follow,
Hold my hand, say
I’m here with you and you are mine.
I don’t know how old I am but
Twenty days is a lifetime, a thousand is a family,
And fifty bees spells the floral mess of earth into a sweetened gift
For earth itself.

  • Paper Mag: What do you think has made you succeed?
  • Jenny Slate: I know that my personal victories come from facing the fear of being left out, of not being loved. The way that I face it is to express the smallest and most breakable parts of myself, to treat those parts as precious and let my audience hold those parts in their own hands for just a moment. It's scary to remind people that you have a beating heart.
