Blog Spotlight: 10 Things I Hate About You's Teenage Feminist Soldiers On

When ABC Family's 10 Things I Hate About You debuted in July, it hinted that Kat (played by Lindsey Shaw) was politically - aware, but as the show has progressed, her character's feminism has become part of the plotline and dialogue.

While I don't watch many teen-oriented shows (with the exception of Gossip Girl, My Super Sweet 16 and America's Next Top Model), I can't remember the last time a teenage TV character proclaimed to be a feminist - and wasn't making a joke. In fact, when Tracie made a list of self-professed feminist TV characters, half of them originated a decade or more ago.
