If you Google “A Little F’d Up” you will find 19-year-old Julie Zeilinger. Julie is the founder of the FBomb (FBomb.org) and author of the new book A Little F’d Up: Why Feminism Is Not A Dirty Word.
Julie is a freshman at Barnard College at Columbia University. She’s a teen writing about things that actually matter. She’s smart, sassy and clever. About the FBomb in her words:
the original article from Forbes, written by Denise Restauri
The FBomb.org is a blog/community created by and for teenage girls who care about their rights as women and want to be heard.
In this case the “F Bomb” stands for “feminist.” However, it also pokes fun at the idea that the term “feminist” is so stigmatized – our way of proudly reclaiming the word. The fact that the “F Bomb” usually refers to a certain swear word in popular culture is also not coincidental. The FBomb.org is for girls who have enough social awareness to be angry and who want to verbalize that feeling. The FBomb.org is loud, proud, sarcastic…everything teenage feminists are today.
