William Shatner doesn’t understand Feminism

A fan at Big Apple Comic Con 2019 was dressed as a handmaiden from Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale”, and was part of the audience at the William Shatner panel. While asking a question during this panel, Shatner asked who she was dressed as, which led to a brief explanation of what the series is about.

This ultimately led to Shatner going off on a tangent about how he and his generation do not understand modern feminism.

Eventually, the audience member was able to ask her question, but you can hear that in our full panel video.
