So I know this is almost a year old, but I couldn’t resist posting this aMAZing video. In this episode of “Smart Girls at the Party,” 7-year-old Ruby Karp, the daughter of BUST co-founder and TV producer Marcelle Karp, talks with Amy Poehler about–among other things–what feminism means. She even serenades Amy with a song celebrating it. If you missed this back in the day, you must see it; it is adorable:

Side note: I wonder if Ruby Karp was named after Ruby Tuesday, the Rolling Stones song. Probably not, but it comes to mind because my mom always wanted to name a daughter after the character. She thought that Ruby Tuesday was a devil-may-care, freewheeling feminist (despite the Rolling Stones’ misogynist rep). And after looking at the lyrics, I agree.
