The men of Hollywood have been getting a bad rap lately, and in some cases, rightfully so. Thankfully not all famous men behave in an offensive or degrading way towards women. These male superstars are tackling gender stereotypes and eliminating the “boys club.” They have been outspoken in their support of women and women’s rights and are proud feminists. You go, guys!
One of the most outspoken feminists of his generation, Mark Ruffalo has spoken on a variety of topics surrounding women, their reproductive rights, their right to vote and their place in Hollywood. Most recently he spoke about the lack of female figures or inaccurate portrayals of them in superhero films. He said “I think that what people might really be upset about is the fact that we need more superhuman women. The guys can do anything, they can have love affairs, they can be weak or strong and nobody raises an eyebrow. But when we do that with a woman, because there are so few storylines for women, we become hyper-critical of every single move that we make because there’s not much else to compare it to.”
