'90s Riot Grrrl on Sexual Harassment, "Boy-Imposed" Ideals and the Word "Fat"

Aired on 08/02/1995 | CC tv-pg
Sara McCool was part of a movement called Riot Grrrl. She pushed back against the "boy-imposed" idea of what a woman should be, the 17-year-old told Oprah in 1995, and embraced her self-described "fat" body without shame.

Here, Sara explains the group's philosophy to Oprah and her audience, opens up about the sexual harassment that she and her younger sister endure regularly, and shares her thoughts on how she'd like to see the world change.
