Read This: Mindy Kaling Tells Lena Dunham What Inspires Her About Other Women

Mindy Kaling talks with Lena Dunham in Tavi Gevinson's second Rookie Yearbook about how other women inspire her. As usual for Kaling, her response runs the full spectrum from poignant ("I love when women are courageous in the face of unthinkable circumstances"), to shrewdly observant ("I love women who don't ask 'Is that OK?' after everything they say"), to funny ("I love women who know how to wear menswear"). Full quote below.
