Hollywood Feminist of the Day: Leighton Meester

For standing up against domestic violence.

“I think it’s an issue that everyone can take part in because it applies to everyone...You can be a victim or someone you love can be a victim. The more people are aware, the more it can be prevented.” Meester said as a woman, she has a special interest in the issue. “No matter who is affected by domestic violence, I take it personally, so I think it’s partly my responsibility to talk about it.”
