Even Gloria Steinem is blown away by the recent wave of energy and activism that’s exploded since President Donald Trump took office.

“I’ve never seen this much activism in my life,” the iconic feminist and social justice activist told clothing company Everlane, referring to gun control activism, the Women’s March and the increasing number of women running for office. “It’s way, way more than anything I’ve ever seen,” she noted.

Steinem, 84, is the first activist to sit down with Everlane for the company’s new video series titled “Human Heroes.” The series debuted Monday morning and highlights people who “have dedicated their lives to empowering their communities and making a difference,” according to Glamour.

Steinem added that the most recent wave of young feminists gives her energy and, in turn, she brings them hope.

“It’s a great trade. We’re better together, right?” she said.
