15 Male Celebrities Who Are Proud Feminists

15 Male Celebrities Who Are Proud Feminists

There is a definite stigma surrounding feminism, but when we break down those negative stereotypes, it all boils down to human rights and equal treatment for every person. Here are some famous male celebrities who are loud and proud feminists!

1. Harry Styles

Not only did Harry support Emma Watson's #HerForShe Campaign, but he has been spotted wearing a shirt that reads 'Women Are Smarter." He also attended the Women's March in January!

2. Prince Harry

“When women are empowered, they immeasurably improve the lives of everyone around them—their families, their communities, and their countries...Real men treat women with dignity and give them the respect they deserve.” he saidYassss, Harry!

3. Mark Ruffalo

Defending reproductive rights of women, Mark spoke and said some pretty powerful stuff, including this simple but straight-to-the-point quote:
"As a man, I see no wisdom in going backwards." 
Yes Mark! Use that powerful platform, stand up for human rights!

4. Will Smith

"If I teach her that I'm in charge of whether or not she can touch her hair, she's going to replace me with some other man when she goes out in the world." he said about his daughter, Willow. 

5. Aziz Ansari

"You're a feminist if you go to a Jay-Z and BeyoncĂ© concert and you're not like, 'Mmm, I feel like BeyoncĂ© should get 23 percent less money than Jay-Z," he said on The Late Show. Tell 'em, Aziz!

6. Daniel Radcliffe

When the Harry Potter star was told that people still saw him as a child when he was cast in an adult role, he responded with this:
"Well, the male population has had no problem sexualizing Emma Watson immediately.” 

7. Barack Obama

"Yes, it's important that their dad is a feminist, because now that's what they expect of all men," the former POTUS said about his two daughters, Sasha and Malia. Can you say #DadGoals?

8. Alan Rickman

Emma Watson shared this tribute after Alan passed, when he said the following on men being feminists:
"There is nothing wrong with a man being a feminist, I think it is to our mutual advantage."

9. Joseph Gordon-Levitt

"I feel like, whether it's a woman or a man, that you don't have to be defined by your gender. You can be whatever you want to be," he said on The Ellen Show. 

10. Ian Somerhalder

"I wanted to take part in this campaign because it's so easy to forget the many women who live their lives in fear because of domestic violence," he said on joining the Women's Aid UK. Go Ian! 

11. John Legend

"Funny there's no dad-shaming. When both of us go out to dinner, shame both of us so Chrissy doesn't have to take it all. We'll split it," he tweeted in backlash of infamous mommy-shaming. 

12. Aaron Tyler-Wood

He was quick to shut down an interviewer who belittled the role of his co-star, Elizabeth Olson, responding perfectly with the below quote. Women are heroes in all forms, and Aaron Tyler-Wood recognized that.

13. Chris Pratt

During a red carpet interview, Chris Pratt insisted that someone ask him who he was wearing, considering it is all women get asked, and responded with:
"I'm wearing a human whose name used to be Chris Pratt." 

14. Harrison Ford

When asked if he was a feminist, Harrison gave a clear-cut, straight-forward response that all men could follow suit in:
“Yeah, because I like women and I respect women.”
Can we start a slow clap for Harrison please?

15. Chris Hemsworth

On top of his gender role-smashing casting as a receptionist in the all-female remake of Ghostbusters, when asked if he was a feminist, he gave an immediate, enthusiastic nod and said "Oh yeah, for sure."
