British singer-songwriter Kate Nash is much more than just a pretty voice; this self-described feminist has campaigned for a variety of causes across the world such as Plan USA, a women’s advocacy group focusing on Africa, as well as projects in the UK directed at young female musicians. “For me, it’s just common sense,” she explained to The Untitled Magazine in an exclusive interview. “It’s like, if you care about life and equality, then you are a feminist. If you don’t, then you’re not a feminist. It doesn’t really matter if you’ve read about it, if you’ve read feminist books or watched Third Wave feminism movies, it’s like if you give a fuck about having rights as a woman or about women having rights, then you are a feminist.”
Most recently, Nash took this ideology on a trip to Ghana where she acted as an ambassador for the I Am A Girl initiative, a human rights effort which creates sustainable projects in developing countries to give girls access to clean water, food, healthcare, education, and protection from violence and exploitation.
