Zooey Deschanel, "adorkable" New Girl actress and one half of music duo She & Him, has been known to not exactly shy away from her staunch feminist views. Earlier this year, a quote from Deschanel went viral that served as a huge slap in the face to her skeptical critics: "We can't be feminine and be feminists and be successful? I want to be a f*cking feminist and wear a f*cking Peter Pan collar. So f*cking what?" Clearly, the girl knows her beliefs, and she's sticking to them.

Which is why she's the perfect fit for MAKERS' line-up of empowered, ladylike women. In fact, she's the latest power woman to join the multiplatform video initiative for which she'll be telling her own story about how the perception of women in Hollywood is changing, her initial audition fears, and more. Her story is one that will surely resonate with all women, especially our MC readers. Watch the first of her collection of videos, above!
