"Feminism can be quite isolating because it is so stigmatized... It can be quite hard to tell people you don’t know that you’re a feminist, because of these persistent stereotypes — people think feminists are anti-men, are humorless, have to dress in a certain way — so the very act of coming together can be quite powerful."
The very act of coming together... Oh, my. That does suggests a headline-grabbing technique.
Now, don't get mad at me. You wanted to show you're not humorless.
I know: That's not funny.
