These 8 Male Celebs Are All Enthusiastic Feminists

There was a time when the word “feminist” only referred to women fighting for the rights of women, but there is an increasing subset of men who identify as feminists now as well. Many male celebrities call themselves feminists and actually back it up with their support of the women’s rights movement. These men publicly announce their belief in gender equality and all the rights for women that come with it. Male celebs who identify themselves use their privilege and fame to bring attention to the many injustices faced by women in the entertainment industry and beyond. To learn more about these men, check out these 8 male celebs who are all enthusiastic feminists. 

Joseph Gordon-Levitt

This actor and director has been repping his feminist badge since 2014, when in an interview with The Daily Beast he said: “What [feminism] means to me is that you don’t let your gender define who you are. However you want to define yourself, you can do that and should be able to do that, and no category ever really describes a person because every person is unique.”

Will Smith

Actor Will Smith sent a message to the world about women’s rights when questioned about why he let his then 13-year-old daughter Willow Smith cut her own hair. His response was because she is in charge of her own body. “Boys laugh at what they put girls through, but they won’t be laughing when they are wiping tears off their daughter’s face for the same reason,” he said regarding young boys bullying girls about their body image. 

Harry Styles

Former One Direction band member Harry Styles has made his support of the feminist movement very well known and has made it a point to put a stop to conversations with sexist overtones. “Stuff like equality feels much more fundamental. I feel like everyone is equal. That’s not politics to me,” Styles said in a 2017 interview.
