Lifestyle blogger Emily Schuman of Cupcakes & Cashmere tells Elle you can totally love making adorably twee cupcakes and still be a feminist. " I don't think there really is a connection between liking girly things like baking and not being a feminist," Schuman says in an interview that covers everything from whether she overshares on her blog to her stance on Photoshop (FYI she says she doesn't know enough about Photoshop to overly edit her outfit photos).

When asked whether she gets critiqued over being married or focused on creating a beautiful home, Schuman says: "I've never gotten any backlash, and I think it's because I am a feminist. I went to an all-women's college, and I really don't see the connection between getting married and having that mean that I don't believe in equal rights for women."
