Stephenie Meyer Is All About Feminism In Life After Twilight!

stephenie meyer becomes a feminist after twilight

Much to the dismay of many devastated Twi-hards, Stephenie Meyer is taking a much needed break from vampires and werewolves and has moved on to bigger and better things.

So what is the former Twilight author up to these days? Apparently she’s busy fighting the good fight and is now a full-time feminist!

In a recent interview, Stephenie talked about why the issue is so important to her, saying:

"I love women, I have a lot of girlfriends, I admire them, they make so much more sense to me than men, and I feel like the world is a better place when women are in charge. So that kind of by default makes me a feminist. I love working in a female world."

Preach!

It's always great to see women who are passionate about a great cause, but we worry that she might have some doubters because some of the negative perceptions of the Twilight series.

Some feel that Bella isn't the best role model due too her dependency on Edward and that they might not have the healthiest relationship, but were guessing none of these people are experts in dating a vampire!

It's also been pointed out that E.L. James’ controversial 50 Shades of Grey series started as Twilight fan fiction, and the books haven't really been a popular read amongst her fellow feminists.

Stephenie has pretty much shrugged off the connection to the raunchy books, saying they aren't for her because they're "too smutty." That might be a bit of an understatement! Ha!

Either way, it's great to see her get involved in such a good cause in her post-Twilight life! You go girl!!

    Having female friends and thinking women are better than men does not make you a feminist. She has written several novels which teach teenage girls that having a boyfriend is the most important thing in the world. There's a passage circulating on tumblr right now from Twilight which describes a moment when Jacob forces Bella to kiss him against her will. Change the names and it's a description of sexual assault, which Bella is then told is her fault (by Jacob) while Jacob is congratulated (by Bella's own father). She is one of feminism's greatest enemies.

    Bella wasn't just dependent on Edward, she was an empty shell of a human without him. It was sickening. He leaves and she literally cannot function without him. She repeatedly says that he is her only reason for living. I don't see this as love, and I certainly don't see her as an empowering female character.

    I totally agree with the first two comments. I think this author is responding to criticism of her lame female characters. And I have never heard a feminist say, 'I love women'. A real feminist sees women as individuals to be judged fairly on their own merits. The phrase, 'I love women', carries about as much power as, 'I love kittens'.
