15 Female Celebrities Who Claim They Aren’t Feminists
These days, it seems like everyone is Hollywood is proud to be a feminist. With Emma Watson as the face of the #HeForShe campaign and stars like Katy Perry and Viola Davis speaking out about the topic at the Women’s March, it’s easy to think everyone’s on board. Even some of our fave male actors like Joseph Gordon-Levitt and John Legend have added their voices to the cause.
But of course, not every celeb is comfortable calling themselves a feminist — and most of that has to do with what they think the word means. Most people know that this movement isn’t about women over men or hating guys in general, but some stars are still sticking to their non-feminist status because they don’t want to be labeled as “man-haters.” And others? They simply just aren’t invested.
Who knows? Maybe one day these lovely ladies will make a shift, just like Katy Perry did last year. “For a long time I misunderstood the true definition of being a feminist, but now that I know, I am empowered,” she wrote on Instagram after the Women’s March. “I am indisputably a feminist. I am here today to break the cycle of suppression and inequality. I stand with you all.” Now that’s what we like to hear!
