Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton told Girls creator Lena Dunham that she is “absolutely” a feminist in a new interview.
The conversation between Clinton and Dunham will be featured on Dunham’s newsletter and site LennyLetter.com, which is launching Sept. 29.
In early teaser clips of the interview, the pair discuss feminism, with Dunham asking if Clinton considers herself a feminist and the former Secretary of State and presidential candidate responding, “Yes, absolutely.”
Clinton added that she’s often “puzzled” by women, particularly young women, who don’t call themselves feminists, noting that the label “doesn’t mean you hate men.”
Lenny Letter is Dunham’s project with Girls showrunner Jenny Konner. Preview content so far has included a short story from Dunham, a piece focusing on Sandra Bland and a plea for stories about abortions before Roe v. Wade.
Dunham’s interview of Clinton will discuss the future First Lady’s life in college, “and the ambivalence she felt in her early 20s about her own life and career path,” a Lenny Letter spokesperson told Politico. The interview will also reportedly include comedy sketches, plus a cameo from Amy Schumer.
