In 8th grade, Julie Zeilinger was doing research for a project and stumbled on some information about female feticide and infanticide, which sparked her interest in feminism. When she couldn't find an online community for young feminists, she decided to start her own. The now 17-year-old is the founder and editor of Fbomb, a feminist blog for teenagers that posts articles from like-minded youngsters across the world. Zeilinger has been recognized for her passion: She blogs for Ms. magazine and was even given the opportunity to interview Gloria Steinem for The Huffington Post.
