When Lena Dunham's recently announced Lenny Letter comes out next Tuesday, it'll have quite the draw: a sit-down with Hillary Clinton herself.
In a preview of the interview on Politico, Clinton says she is "absolutely" a feminist: "I'm always a little bit puzzled when any woman of whatever age, but particularly a young woman, says something like, and you've heard it, something like, 'Well, I believe in equal rights but I'm not a feminist.' Well, a feminist is, by definition, someone who believes in equal rights. I'm hoping that people will not be afraid to say, 'That doesn't mean you hate men," she continues. "It doesn't mean you want to separate out the world, so you're not a part of ordinary life — that's not what it means at all! It just means that we believe that women have the same rights as men, politically, culturally, socially, economically."
The Democratic presidential hopeful has been on a big TV push of late. She's made stops by The Ellen DeGeneres Show and The Tonight Show, and tackled the issue of sexual assault in an interview with Refinery29 last week. Her one-on-one with Dunham is another attempt to reach young women voters who are the target audience of Lenny.
According to Politico, Dunham and Clinton's interview goes into depth about Clinton's life in college and her stances on women's health and student debt. In addition to the interview, Clinton also apparently filmed sketches with Dunham and Amy Schumer at her campaign headquarters in Brooklyn, New York.
