7 Year Old Brazilian Skateboarding Princess Is Feminist Icon Of 2015

We heard a lot about feminism in 2015, whether it was in the presidential primary cycle, how it’s been watered-down into a branding exercise for celebrities, or the ultimately futile efforts from this shittier corners of the internet to distort its meaning into something corrosive.

Leal, a 7 year old from Imperatriz, Brazil, captured the attention of the internet back in September when a video surfaced of her donning a princess costume, as many young girls around the world do, sure, but then absolutely slaying a heel flip down a flight of stairs.

 

De hoje, Viva o Skateboarding7 de setembro 😀
