Dunham has been in the spotlight ever since releasing her first feature film, Tiny Furniture in 2010. She has always been vocal about her views and she hasn't let fame change her views about herself or women, broadly.
On the subject, she had this say: "On Girls I like being a mouthpiece for the issues I think young females face today. It's always shocking when people question whether it's a feminist show. How could a show about women exploring women not be? Feminism isn't a dirty word. It's not like we're a deranged group who think women should take over the planet, raise our young on our own and eliminate men from the picture. Feminism is about women having all the rights that men have."
