ARE YOU A FEMINIST?
30th April 2016
Kylie is 18-years old but has already made a huge name for herself in business! She has her own Puma collection, TopShop Collection with sister Kendall and a successful LipKit. I like her vibe, she seems like she keeps her real friends close and is not as obsessed with the fame as you would expect, even though she’s grown up in it.
“I do consider myself a feminist,I’m a young woman, for one thing, and I don’t depend on a man or anybody else. I make my own money and start my own businesses, and I feel like I’m an inspiration for a lot of young girls who want to stand on their own.”
She is all over Glamour in June, looking stunning with a more natural look.

In the feature she talks about her success, being a feminist and fame.
“I only show people what I want them to see and in time, I think I’ll just slowly start moving behind the scenes.The show has to end eventually, and I’m not going to leave until we’re done with it, but by 20 I want to have the whole of my cosmetics line out because that’s my primary focus. I definitely won’t want to be doing anything else that would make me more public.”
“I haven’t had a dollar of my mum’s money for five years. Ever since I started earning my own money, I’ve paid for everything: all my cars, houses, clothes, everything. I like to know exactly what’s going on and I’m actually quite careful with what I spend. We all are as a family.”
Being a feminist what does that mean to you??
I guess it means different things to all of us, I consider myself one, maybe when I was 18-years old I wasn’t as brave as Kylie to say it out loud or understand it. We all grew up thinking feminists were girls who burnt bras and acted like the guys, but how stupid were those silly misconceptions. A feminist for me is a female that wants equality, to be treated fairly and allowed all the same opportunities as the boys.
Even in presenting being a girl is tough, we are supposed to look pretty and stand next to a man that is allowed to be smarter, bolder and funnier then us. Why?? Who made that rule?? I worked hard to host my own shows but trust me it’s not been easy. You are expected to look pretty and flutter your eye lashes, don’t ask challenging questions or create amazing features that have never been done before, without a man steering it. Being a feminist is tough at times but if us girls act more like sisters then competitors we can change the world we live in.
