Amy Schumer is a well-liked comedian and she does bring an honest message about her real life to the public. Amy was the victim of a sexual assault. She has the attention of young women through her comedy show, so she is a voice of feminism. And she is willing to challenge those who are not sensitive or appropriate on the topic of sexual abuse.
Amy Schumer is the new voice of feminism. She is not afraid to speak out on the issues, including expressing her disappointment in writer Kurt Metzger after he made comments about sexual abuse. Schumer, through he stand-up comedy routine, also talks freely about sexual issues, opening up conversations across America.
I feel strongly that Amy Schumer has taken a stand for feminism and has brought more awareness to issues that need to be discussed. She refuses to be accept traditional views of how a woman should be in our society and challenges us to accept women in our modern world.
Although Amy Schumer spoke out against Kurt Metzger's apparent apology for rapists, this does not make her the new voice of feminism. She might be considered the new voice of feminism if she had spoken out without being asked to do so by followers and stood her ground despite any backlash from Metzger. This was not the case. After taking her stand, she then crawled back into her corner and posted a Tweet telling her fans to quit asking her about the subject. If she were a true voice of feminism, she would have ongoing opinions about the status of women and issues affecting them, and she would be speaking out about these issues as a matter of course, not because she was asked to do so by fans. Also, if she were a true voice of feminism, she would be more than merely disappointed in a male colleague who demonstrates this kind of behavior.
