Kat, played by Julia Stiles, is sassy in the ska 90s way that she wears a lot of earrings and likes girl bands. She’s the first high school feminist I was ever exposed to, which is why I started saying “whatever” a lot while reading books like Reviving Ophelia. She doesn’t care about subjecting herself to the patriarchy and therefore gets the hottest guy in school. Challenge ACCEPTED, Kat!
