The video was written, directed and co-produced by actress (and Britton's "Nashville" co-star) Laura Benanti, who also happens to be a pretty badass feminist herself. "The fact that many young women shy away from calling themselves feminists shows us that there is still a misunderstanding of the word," Benanti told The Huffington Post. "All people should be feminists. Also… feminists are funny, too."Hell yeah they are. As Britton says in the video: "Feminism is made to be used on a daily basis and works best when shared."
