15 Female Celebrities Who Refuse to Call Themselves Feminists


Look up the word "feminism" in the dictionary and you'll find its definition listed as "the belief that men and women should have equal rights and opportunities." What woman wouldn't want to align herself with such an ideology, right? Yet countless female stars have attempted to distance themselves from the term "feminist" — even while championing women's rights. 

Some have shunned the "feminist" label because of what they perceive as the word's meaning, associating feminism with male bashing. Others have steered clear of the label because of the way in which it has been maligned and misunderstood, fearing that proclaiming themselves "feminists" would lead to backlash. The following stars all refuse to call themselves feminists, and they're not afraid to let that stance be known.
