High schooler uses her yearbook quote to put on a class of her own on feminism

High school yearbook quotes are usually pretty boiler plate. But Caitlyn Cannon used her senior yearbook quote to make a powerful statement about sexuality, feminism and equal pay.

*mic drop*

I never expected to get a lesson on feminism from a high schooler, but there it is. Well done, Caitlyn. I have a feeling your future is going to be bright indeed — and feel sorry for the beating that glass ceiling's going to take from you and that future wife of yours.
