For the first time, the term “feminism” was used only for women. But these days, the number of men calling themselves feminists is rapidly increasing. This is becoming especially popular in the world of celebrities and in fact, these men are supporting this women’s movement. Many of them speak publicly, saying that they support gender equality and the rights of women that they should receive. They use their popularity to draw attention to the really important things, and injustices women face around the world. We have compiled a list of 8 male celebs who are supporting feminism in 2021.
The iconic actor first announced his feminism views when asked why he allowed his then 13-year-old daughter to have her hair cut at her discretion. “This is her body, and she has the right to decide when and how to cut her hair,” Will Smith replied. He also encouraged young boys to stop bullying girls about their body image.
The singer has repeatedly stated his position on this issue, and relatively recently he became a partner of Makers Media, a popular brand that increases women’s voices. “A lot of guys say, ‘Oh, I have a daughter, and now I’m going to support women’s rights.’ I want you to understand that we always need women, and they always deserve justice always.”
The actor is rapidly gaining popularity, but he also has a solid social position outside of work. He really has reasons to be an enthusiastic feminist. “All my life I grew up without a father, and I am grateful to my single mother that she gave me everything she could. It would be strange if I did not believe in the correctness of feminism,” Jason said in an interview in 2015.
The singer began supporting the feminist movement when he was a member of the One Direction band. Today, he remains committed to his beliefs with the goal of ending sexist conversations. “In today’s world, questions of equality seem fundamental enough. I believe that men and women should be equal,” Styles stated in 2017.
His views on feminism became known all over the world after many fans of Mad Max: Fury Road were upset that Charlize Theron, who played the female character Furiosa, was given such a big role. In his comments, Tom Hardy said that this situation does not make him worried, and women really deserve important roles not only in movies but also in real life.
The talented director and actor is not shy about his feminist views. He first started this in 2014, in an interview for The Daily Beast. “For me, that means you don’t let your gender determine who you are. Everyone is unique, but nevertheless, we all deserve equality and fair treatment.”
He is one of the few male celebrities to claim that women are superior to men in some ways. “I really think we should admire women. They are smarter and more evolving. Fathers of daughters will immediately notice this when they start outperforming boys,” Ryan Gosling said.
Although Chris Hemsworth plays the roles of strong and courageous characters, he openly declares his support for the popular women’s movement. Especially, the Hollywood actor speaks out against the sexual assault, stalking, domestic violence, and other trash faced by women around the world.
