In a recent video for Makers, Zooey Deschanel explains how she became a “feminist by accident” and why she feels responsible for making sure girls have a world of opportunity.

It looks like Alicia Keys isn’t the only girl on fire! Like Keys, Deschanel took some time out of her insanely busy schedule to film a few videos for Makers, a site that profiles the women who have helped shape America into the country it is today. The “New Girl” star proudly admits to being a feminist saying, “I think that if you’re a strong woman who wants to succeed, you have to be a feminist.”

Deschanel goes on to say that she believes it is “our responsibility to create a world in which girls can grow up and not have to limit their dreams or possibilities.” Given the work the actress and musician is doing with her site, HelloGiggles.com, a “positive online community” for women, we think Deschanel is definitely doing her job to create that world for girls.

If you want to learn more about Makers and the groundbreaking women who have made America what it is today, you can watch the “Makers: Women Who Make America” documentary online now.  To learn more about feminism and how you can create a better world for girls and women, check out the action links below.
