I have been so blessed to portray such a phenomenal woman as Dana Scully. She has taught me about strength and self-worth and personal power. In early episodes, when I was called upon to address large groups of male FBI agents with authority and self assurance, I felt so scared and weak that my voice would come out high-pitched and shaky. But the more I “acted as if” I was self-assured, the more I felt powerful. And believe it or not, it can be that simple. "Acting as if" is sometimes all it takes to empower oneself, and I have learned to carry this into other areas of my life. When meeting with high-powered directors and producers, or presenting an award at an award ceremony, or doing a talk show; I act as if I am a strong, capable, worthy woman of power. And the more I do this, the more people listen to what I have to say and value my opinion.

But trying to mold feminism into an identity that anyone can claim, no matter what they believe about women’s rights, is a mistake. Whereas feminism used to be an active belief system that challenged patriarchy, it is now (at least in the public imagination) “anything a woman chooses to do”—even if those actions directly contradict feminist values.

TIL that Laurie Holden (Andrea from the Walking Dead) is a member of Operation Underground Railroad, whose mission is to hunt down sex traffickers. She was recently part of a sting in Columbia which resulted in the arrest of 12 criminals and the rescue of 55 sex trafficking victims.
