"All men should be feminists. If men care about women's rights the world will be a better place. We are better off when women are empowered – it leads to a better society."

Tennis champion Andy Murray was questioned, 'Have he become a feminist?' by the sports newspaper L’Equipe. To which he responded, "Well if being a feminist is about fighting so that a woman is treated like a man then yes, I suppose I have."
3. Prince Harry
'We know that when women are empowered, they immeasurably improve the lives of everyone around them – their families, their communities, and their countries. This is not just about women, we need men to recognise the part we play too. Real men treat women with dignity and give them the respect they deserve.'
4. Will Smith
"When you have a little girl, it's like, how can you teach her that you're in control of her body? If I teach her that I'm in charge of whether or not she can touch her hair, she's going to replace me with some other man when she goes out in the world. She can't cut my hair, but that's her hair. She has got to have command of her body. So when she goes out into the world, she's going out with a command that is hers. She is used to making those decisions herself. We try to keep giving them those decisions until they can hold the full weight of their lives."
5. Joseph Gordon-Levitt
"What [feminism] means to me is that you don’t let your gender define who you are — you can be who you want to be, whether you’re a man, a woman, a boy, a girl, whatever."
6. Daniel Craig
"Women are responsible for two-thirds of the work done worldwide, yet earn only 10 percent of the total income and own one percent of the property… So, are we equals? Until the answer is yes, we must never stop asking."
7. Tom Hardy
"I identify with having strong, powerful female influences in my life. Do you think that women are fairly represented in screenplays, film, TV, and theatre today? Or do you think there should be better parts for women than just a girlfriend and wife or lover? Because I’m bored with that."

"Since there have been men and women, there have been funny women... f**king idiot-ass men keep saying that women aren't funny. It makes me crazy. I find it disgusting and offensive every time."

"I think it’s important that we all come together to figure out how we can make [equal pay for men and women] possible, as soon as possible. Not just as "fathers of daughters", or for those sorts of reasons. And not just on Women’s Equality Day. Every day—that’s when we need to be working to close the pay gap in this country."
10. Seth Meyers
"When you work with the sort of really strong women that I work with, the idea that anyone would want to make decisions for them is hard to wrap your head around."

"You often hear misogynists bemoaning 'female comedy' because it deals with specifically female issues that they can’t relate to. That makes sense because misogynists suffer from a severe lack of empathy."
