"I feel like some girls around my age are less inclined to say, 'Of course I'm a feminist, and of course I believe in equal rights for men and women,' because there are implications that go along with the word feminist that they feel are too in-your-face or aggressive," Stewart told the magazine. "A lot of girls nowadays are like, 'Eww, I'm not like that.' They don't get that there's no one particular way you have to be in order to stand for all of the things feminism stands for."
The 24-year-old former Twilight star also railed against the recurring trend of people arguing that there isn't a disparity between the roles men and women get in the movie business.
"It's silly to play the devil's advocate when having a conversation about female roles in Hollywood," the 24-year-old actress said. "Because then you're doing this 'reverse feminism' thing that has become weirdly trendy recently."
