If you’re still weighing the options on why to call yourself a feminist and still thinking it’s “uncool”, you may be wondering who you know who publicly calls themselves feminists.  Not surprisingly, many celebrities call themselves feminists, and even go as far as using their celebrity status to work for the cause.

Amy Poehler

Amy Poehler is a full on feminist and believes that everyone should call themselves one.  She doesn’t understand the not- a – feminist trend and has a word about women who renounce feminism.  “That’s like someone being like, ‘I don’t really believe in cars, but I drive one every day and I love that it gets me places and makes life so much easier and faster and I don’t know what I would do without it,'” she said.  The analogy perfectly describes why the current feminism movement is so important.

Beyoncé

Beyoncé is no stranger to feminism.  The Shiver Report reported that 42 million women in the United States are either living in poverty or are on the brink of living in poverty. Beyoncé felt so strong about the cause that she wrote an essay regarding gender equality as a response to it.

Ashton Kutcher

See it’s okay for guys to publicly call themselves feminists!  Ashton Kutcher has been seen as an activist on multiple different occasions regarding women and equality.  He feels strongly about how women are sexualized and feels that it should be stopped.  His passion is so strong that he has created a program to help minimize sex trafficking and sexualization of girls and women.

Miley Cyrus

Peace loving Miley just wants everyone to be happy and spread good vibes.  Equality is an issue very dear to her.  She feels the way she acts is a way to get the conversation on equality going.  “I mean, guy rappers grab their crotch all f–king day and have hos around them, but no one talks about it,” she said, “But if I grab my crotch and I have hot model bitches around me, I’m degrading women? It’s not equal.”
