We suspect the average Jane Dough reader was a bit of a Tracy Flick in high school or college (guilty!). Fox News political analyst Kirsten Powers, a contributor for The Daily Beast and New York Post and proud Democrat, says she was a lot like Flick at the beginning of her career — and we think that’s a good thing. You don’t get to serve in the Clinton Administration, become a higher-up at AOL, work on political campaigns, or regularly appear on television without being ambitious.
You also don’t have the chance to publicly denounce misogyny on multiple occasions without the strength to endure the backlash. Powers has been doing that for a while, and though she has put forth a lot of effort to combat misogyny, she’s going to continue fighting the good fight, so we’re lucky we had a opportunity to chat with her about women’s rights, how she got to where she is today, and her future goals.
