Bethany Cosentino is the lead singer of California surf rock duo Best Coast. She is an activist who has been very vocal in supporting Planned Parenthood and campaigned for Bernie Sanders in the recent election. Cosentino is open about her own struggles with anxiety and encourages fans to take an active role in handling their mental illnesses. As a woman in music, she has seen sexism first hand and talks about it here and here. She also recently set up an email hotline that fans can write to if they are feeling discouraged or anxious about the election results.
