Let’s hear it for the boys!

Fighting the crimes of gender inequality is all in a days work for these male celebrities, who prove that Feminism and equality between the sexes is not just a women’s issue. No matter you gender, skin colour, sexual orientation, ethnicity or culture- gender inequality affects all so it time we all stand together and fight for the rights  of both sexes!

John Legend

As a contemporary music Legend (pun intented), the artist has openly advocated for women on numerous public platforms over his career, believing in equal rights for both sexes. One of his newest music videos, “You & I (Nobody In The World)” promotes self-acceptance and empowerment in women. We are hoping his soothing voice and gender equality efforts can create greater acceptance of Feminism as a social movement.

Joseph Gordon- Levitt

The actor has bought to the spot light something that has us cheering… gender equality. The star that clearly defines himself as a Feminist highlights that gender inequality is an issue for both sexes to combat in order for individuals to express themselves fairly and freely.

“If you look at history, women are an oppressed category of people. There’s a long, long history of women suffering abuse, injustice and not having the same opportunities as men, and I think that’s been very detrimental to the human race as a whole. I’m a believer that if everyone has a fair chance to be what they want to be and do what they want to do, it’s better for everyone. It benefits society as a whole.”

Prince Harry

Feminism has the royal tick of approval, with Prince Harry advocating for equality in a speech at the Chime for Change concert stating that women when given power work towards improving communities and groups locally and internationally.

Jon Hamm

While Mr. Don Draper has a little to answer for when it comes to the treatment of women, actor John Hamm has made it quite clear that he is happy to see a male-dominated society diminished, with the breaking of gender roles and standards important for equality.

Daniel Craig

Mr. Bond himself has tasked the whole world with a mission, for the equal employment and gender rights of males and females. The actor starred in a short video for International Women’s Day 2011 to promote equal rights and highlighting the issues faced associated with gender.

Ryan Gosling

Hey Girl… even Mr. Gosling himself has put gender inequality under the microscope! The actor revealed he leans towards roles with accompanying female leads after growing up in headstrong women who were empowered to have equal rights. The star recently questioned the issue of gender sexualisation in cinematic culture.

Ashton Kutcher

No Strings Attached with this one… The actor believes that like their male counterparts, female sexuality should be celebrated rather than condemned.

Harry Styles

The British singer wants women to know what makes them beautiful- inside and out as empowered and strong individuals who can help equally run society. The star since appearing in the spotlight has called out on sexism, fights against issues such as bullying and body image and inspires female fans to feel powerful in their own skin to take on the world.
