In the early XX century, suffragists broke windows, set fire to post offices, and cut telephone wires, fighting for the right to vote. In the 1960s, American housewives rallied to legalize abortion and provide social support for working women. One small step after another, feminists have proven that women should be able to vote, get an education, work, and have complete control over their bodies.
Today, feminism is still going strong, even though the radicals are ruining it for everyone. Even Hollywood stars are using their celebrity status to defend women’s rights, and they are doing a great job!
1. Scarlett Johansson
One of the richest actresses in Hollywood, Scarlett Johansson, whose fortune is estimated well over $100 million, has repeatedly admitted that in the past, she was often underpaid just because she is a woman. That was a very sad experience for her, so now that she’s a Marvel hero, Scarlett does her best to speak up for other women in the industry.
The legendary Madonna believes that the horrible trend of women’s lives being full of constant prohibitions and restrictions can only be changed by joint efforts. The singer argues that the modern world is ruled by men who allow themselves too much, and women should fight such double standards.
3. Natalie Portman
Portman does not believe in radical feminism, preaching that women’s rights supporters should not humiliate men, and that fragile young ladies can also be feminists. The actress has repeatedly emphasized in interviews and speeches how important it is for Hollywood to portray feminism correctly. She is also one of the many celebs to publicly raise the issue of unequal pay in Hollywood between men and women.
