Caitlin Stasey, 24, opened up about womanhood and what it means to her on her new feminism website. She also addressed the topic of her own sexuality and how she’s had “vivid dreams about other women” — find out what else she wants the world to know.

In her interview on Herself.com, Caitlin talked about her own sexuality saying, “I would have vivid dreams about other women. Every night I’d drift off into this utopia of women being available to me & knowing nothing other than my desire for them…. A lack of monumental events shaped my sexuality, masturbating in secret, telling no one, saying nothing, concealing all sexual queries or thoughts. It’s the single reason I’m so adamant that LGBTQIA characters be involved in children’s entertainment.”
The main theme of her new site is women and the stories they wish to tell, so Caitlin went ahead and answered the question, “What does the word ‘woman’ mean to you?”
She said, “It can mean anything. At this point, in my world, it means a group of people of varying sexualities, ethnicities, body parts & mentalities forging ahead despite the push back of centuries of oppression. Women are fu**ing durable & powerful.”
The Media’s Portrayal Of Women
The media is something Caitlin has to deal with daily being an actress on the CW’s show ‘Reign’. She expressed how unfortunate the media’s depiction of women is.
“It depicts us as sexless unless corrupt, hairless unless masculine & helpless unless evil. We’re not allowed to be gross or crass & intelligent, or beautiful & funny. We have to fit into neat little boxes.”
Her parting words to women everywhere was “Love each other, support each other, defend each other. It comes at a greater cost to you to attack the women around you than it does to empower them.”
