As part of Teen Vogue‘s September issue, which is built around the theme #ForGirlsByGirls, the magazine’s editors paired up actress Amandla Stenberg with Gloria Steinem for a candid discussion about feminism.

Soak up these inspiring individuals’ conversation in full below, then be sure to pick up a copy of Teen Vogue – fun fact: the issue was photographed entirely by women! – on stands August 16th.
