NEW YORK, Sept. 24 (UPI) -- Presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton sat down with Girls star Lena Dunham in an effort to reach young women voters.

The pre-tapped interview that will become available Tuesday to subscribers of Dunham's new website LennyLetter.com, focuses on feminism, women's health and student debt.

When asked if she considered herself a feminist, Clinton responded, "Yes, absolutely. I'm always a little bit puzzled when any woman of whatever age, but particularly a young woman, says something like, 'well, I believe in equal rights but I'm not a feminist.' Well, a feminist is by definition someone who believes in equal rights. I'm hoping that people will not be afraid to say, that doesn't mean you hate men, it doesn't mean that you want to separate out the world, so you're not a part of ordinary life — that's not what it means at all! It just means that we believe women have the same rights as men."

The talk will also include comedy sketches, including an appearance by comedian Amy Schumer, all filmed in Clinton's Brooklyn headquarters.
