10+ Celebrity Men Who Are Proud To Be Feminists

The fight for gender equality has come a long way. Every day we're that much closer to eradicating gender norms and stereotypes that have plagued our society for generations.

As a show of support and solidarity, several male celebrities have begun voicing their support for the women's rights movement. See for yourself and check out these 10+ celebrity men who are proud to be feminists.

Harry Styles

Former One Direction frontman Harry Styles has been surrounded by strong women his entire life.

That's why he's been a vocal advocate for the #HeForShe Movement since 2014. Harry was also a huge supporter of Emma Watson after she was made UN Goodwill Ambassador.

John Legend

John Legend doesn't just speak the words, he puts his money where his mouth is.

During the filming of the documentary series Surviving R. Kelly, John was the only male celebrity who stepped forward to condemn the once-iconic R&B superstar.

Tom Hardy

Tom Hardy is bored of seeing women reduced to the pining wife/girlfriend/lover on the big screen.

The celebrated actor goes on to say that he identifies with growing up surrounded by strong women and wants to see the roles and opportunities for women to reflect that.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt

"I do call myself a feminist," Joe explained during an interview with Cosmopoilitan.

"It's worth paying attention to the roles that are dictated to us and to realise[sic] that we don't have to fit into these roles. We can be anybody we want to be."

David Schwimmer

Did you know that 1/3 of women in the workplace will experience sexual harassment? The numbers are positively staggering.

The figures drove Friends alumni David Schimmer to start his own campaign in order to raise awareness regarding harassment at work.

Jon Hamm

Don't paint Jon Hamm with the same brush as his Mad Men character, Don Draper. The two men couldn't be more unlike one another.

If you haven't heard Jon narrate the short film If You Ever Hurt My Daughter, I Swear to God I'll Let Her Navigate Her Own Emotional Growth — you can listen here.

Mark Ruffalo

When Mark and Scarlett Johnasson sat down to do a press interview for the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron film, the interviewer decided to flip the script on Mark.

She began asking him a myriad of incredibly sexist questions in order to illustrate the disparity of the sexes. Mark happily obliged.

Kiefer Sutherland

During the UN launch of #HeForShe, Kiefer Sutherland called on all men, domestic and abroad, to come together as a united front and stand up for women's rights.

As Kiefer was quick to point out, women's rights are human rights.

Eddie Vedder

When speaking about women's rights during a live Pearl Jam performance in Columbia, Vedder said,

"All we can do together, is not only to give them equality and safety but to give them the tools and the space to be agents of change."

Ryan Gosling

In Ryan's own opinion, he believes that women are better than men; more mature as well as more intelligent.

The acclaimed actor said that he's seen firsthand how his daughter is so much more advanced compared to the other young boys her age.

Will Smith

Will Smith is so devoted to the idea of his daughter being in control of her own body that as a child, Will and Jada let Willow cut her own hair.

The Bad Boys star said he didn't want Willow to have even the slightest inclination that he was in control of her body.

Chris Martin

Years ago, Chris Martin partnered with a group called Global Citizen in a combined attempt to help end gender inequality and sexist laws around the world. Chris has signed on to curate the entire event until 2030.

Chris Hemsworth

There's a harrowing statistic that suggests 1 in every 5 children will be the victims of either physical or sexual abuse in their lifetime.

This is why you'll often see Chris with one of his fingernails on each hand, painted. So guys, if you want to be more like Thor — paint those nails.

Joseph Fiennes

Joseph Fiennes is absolutely nothing like the Commander we see in The Handmaid's Tale. During an interview with Marie Claire, Joseph revealed:

"The three most important people in my life are my wife and two daughters, and certainly the show has jolted me into a much more alert state of the inequality amongst the sexes."

Jason Mamoa

Jason has been open and honest regarding the fact that he wasn't raised by a man. Rather, his mother was forced to play both parental roles while he was growing up.

The Aquaman star has said that it would be ludicrous to consider himself as anything but a feminist.
