Shailene Woodley Explains Why She is not a Feminist

May 7, 2014 Shailene Woodley

Shailene Woodley is anything but a feminist.

Why not? "Because I love men," she tells Time, "and I think the idea of 'raise women to power, take the men away from the power' is never going to work out because you need balance. With myself, I'm very in touch with my masculine side. And I'm 50 percent feminine and 50 percent masculine, same as I think a lot of us are. And I think that is important to note. And also I think that if men went down and women rose to power, that wouldn't work either. We have to have a fine balance."

"I don't know how we as women expect men to respect us because we don't even seem to respect each other," the 23-year-old explains. "There's so much jealousy, so much comparison and envy, and, 'this girl did this to me and that girl did that to me.' And it's just so silly and heartbreaking in a way."

Considering the revenge comedy The Other Woman as an example, Woodley says, "I think it's really neat that it shows women coming together and supporting each other and creating a sisterhood of support for one another versus hating each other for something that somebody else created."
