The internet has taken an interest in 13-year-old Sarah, whose home video, "Slut Shaming and Why It's Wrong," went viral, causing a stir in the online feminist community.

Now, Sarah joins "Anderson" to talk about purity balls, and how they can serve as a crutch for stereotypical gender norms.

"I do think that they [purity balls] put men in a better place than they put women," Sarah says. "I find that the abstinence movement sort of promotes traditional gender norms in saying that women's worth and women's value come from their sexuality, which is completely untrue."

Hear more of Sarah's insight about how men and women are treated differently by Sarah's peers and adults.
