Last August, the Kimoji creator posted a personal essay on her website and app titled “Why I Don’t Label Myself a Feminist.”
“For me, feminist is someone who advocates for the civil and social rights and liberties of all people, regardless of their gender; anyone who believes that women should have the same choices and opportunities as men when it comes to education and employment, their bodies and their lifestyles,” Kardashian West wrote. “Of course I want these things! I’m all about empowering and uplifting women.”
Throughout the past year, though, her perspective seems to have changed.
“I said once before that I’m not really a feminist,” Kardashian West said in a recent interview with Harper’s Bazaar Arabia. “But I feel I do a lot more than people that claim that they’re feminist,” she continued. “To clarify what I said before: I feel in my soul I’m a feminist. I just don’t need labels to make me feel or know what I am inside.”
