The #MeToo hashtag and Time’s Up movement dominate the Hollywood headlines. So it would be easy to assume all of Hollywood’s women are fighting for equal rights. But for their own reasons, many famous women have distanced themselves from feminism. And they’ve done so publicly in the press. Boasting top names like Katy Perry and Kelly Clarkson, the list of female celebs who swear they aren’t feminists is sure to shock you.
According to British singer-songwriter Lily Allen, we’re all equal–and there’s absolutely no need for feminism! “Feminism. I hate that word because it shouldn’t even be a thing any more,” she said. “We’re all equal, everyone is equal so why is there even a conversation about feminism? What’s the man version of feminism? There isn’t even a word for it. There’s no reason for it.”
