Maliaand Sasha

BARACK OBAMA has penned an open letter on the importance of being a feminist role model for his teenage daughters, Maliaand Sasha

"Michelle and I have raised our daughters to speak up when they see a double standard or feel unfairly judged based on their gender or race - or when they notice that happening to someone else," he wrote for Glamour. "It's important for them to see role models out in the world who climb to the highest levels of whatever field they choose. And yes, it's important that their dad is a feminist, because now that's what they expect of all men."
