7 Male Celebrity Feminists Who Make Us Proud

5. Ashton Kutcher

During his press tour for No Strings Attached, Kutcher spoke about his work against human trafficking, and the cost women pay for their sexuality. “I do a lot of work on human trafficking and I connect a lot with girls that end up in this ‘trade’ if you will, partially because of a lack of education about sex in their country,” he said. “I think that sometimes we get to make films that sort of open things up, things that people can talk about. . . To create a movie with a female lead that is empowered with her own sexuality, I think is a really powerful thing. And I think if we could give teenage people something to think about from a sex perspective, I would say it would be to open up a conversation where women are empowered with their own sexual experiences from an educational level as well as an entertainment one.”

6. Blair Underwood

The actor spoke out about reproductive rights as far back as 1992. ““You can’t live in this world, obviously, without coming into contact with women. I mean, a woman is my mother, gave me life, gave me sisters. I have a girlfriend I love dearly. All of that comes into play,” he said. “It’s not about abortion being right or wrong. It’s about having that choice to decide what a person should do with their own body.”

7. Mark Ruffalo

The star gave a speech last summer at a pro-choice rally in Jackson, Mississippi about his mother’s illegal abortion. “My own mother fought to make herself more than a possession,” he said“She lived her life as a mother who chose when she would have children, and a wife who could earn a living if she so chose. I want my daughters to enjoy that same choice.”
