Olivia is raising a little feminist and we couldn’t be more thrilled!
Actress Olivia Wilde has always been a vocal feminist and now she’s revealed how she’s teaching her son Otis to be a little feminist too!
“I like to think he’s already a little feminist. And he is. He’s a really good guy. I want to promote the idea that the definition of feminism is equality and it’s something that’s not difficult to teach children because they are born with that sensibility. They are only taught to separate people and value them differently once they get older,” she told Yahoo! Beauty.
She also explained how lucky she was to be able to experiment with identity growing up and how she plans to encourage the same in Otis.
“I hope to raise a child who values people for what’s within them and yet I hope he experiments with his own identity and who he wants to be. I look forward to helping him feel that type of confidence I felt when growing up.”
