It’s International Women’s Day and in honor of this day that celebrates women and all the awesome things we can do, here are ten women in Hollywood using their position to empower women around the world.
Aside from being a friend nearly everyone, T-Swift is known for the awesome things she does for her fans. She is truly a girls-girl.
Bey has always been all about empowering women and recently opened up about her beliefs in feminism and equality for men and women. CNN reports,”‘I’ve always considered myself a feminist, although I was always afraid of that word because people put so much on it,” Beyonce says. “When honestly, it’s very simple. It’s just a person that believes in equality for men and women. Men and women balance each other out, and we have to get to a point where we are comfortable with appreciating each other.'”
After dealing with body image and depression struggles, Demi speaks openly about her situation and tries to encourage women to love themselves just the way they are.
Always advocating for women’s rights and even taking a year off of acting to focus on learning more about herself and feminism.
She speaks openly about what women deal with and isn’t afraid to pose without the help of retouched photos or waist trainers. This is the first time I’ve seen Amy posing nude in any capacity so do not confuse her for a certain other celebrity that’s also going nude…
After a 3 year hiatus, she’s back and as fierce as ever. If you haven’t listened to her album, YOU MUST!
She got backlash taking part in an all-female cast remake of the classic Ghostbusters movie and didn’t let it get to her. The film is set to premiere July 22nd!
Popstar and supermom! We all know of Britney’s struggles, but she also bounced back better than ever. With her residency in Las Vegas for the last few years, Spears has been able to stay in the limelight without letting it affect raising her boys.
“I’m gonna do [a new album] slowly but surely,” Brit told Billboard in March 2015. “There’s a lot going on with my kids and schools and, you know, adding new sports and stuff like that. I’m gonna try to do my best to do an amazing album, but it’s not my full priority right now.”
Also a part of the Ghostbusters reboot, McCarthy created a brand made for women of all sizes. Elle Magazine reports, “Melissa McCarthy’s Seven7 clothing line is recasting the thin-framed mold. ‘I started to think, if I could do anything to build women up rather than the constant teardown, I’m going to do it,’ she told Forbes this year.”
Chloe Grace Moretz:
Chloe is also not afraid to post a non-retouched image of herself online and also just announced she’s partnering with Day For Girls. An organization supporting reusable feminine hygiene for Syrian women and girls.
