Late Show: Rashida Jones teaches Stephen Colbert how to be a feminist

Posted on

The Late Show with Stephen Colbert

Stephen Colbert considers himself to be a feminist. Recently, he addressed the lack of female emojis and Marvel movie villains on The Late Show. The only thing is, he doesn’t know what he’s supposed to do now. Thankfully, his recent guest, Rashida Jones, showed him the way. 

“Do you know what to do to be a feminist?” she asked. After Colbert shook his head, she said, “Well, you just have to stay educated and stay sensitive.”

Another lesson to her young feminist Padawan was to realize what women go through. “There’s a lot of, kind of inherent sexism when you’re an actress and you’re interviewed, whether it’s on a red carpet or about a movie or whatever,” Jones said. Some of these questions include, “Who are you wearing?” “What is your beauty regimen?” and “With three kids at home, how do you do it all?” 

See how Colbert faired with the new skills Jones taught him in the video above.
