“Rethink the world.” This is the slogan of Mic News, known as a news outlet made by and produced for millennials. The website’s content features a distinctly millennial perspective in much of what is reported. Amongst the many news features they have is the quirky and hard-hitting web series, Flip the Script.
In a series of videos ranging from two to five minutes, Elizabeth Plank, Mic’s senior editor, “challenges the assumptions” that society makes about those who are underrepresented or misinterpreted. Elizabeth, who is a staunch feminist, tackles each topic with humor and wit – and each video is always relevant to current news events. Here are three of the best Flip the Script feminism-based videos, which will have you hooked, whether you agree or not.
