In celebration of International Women’s Day, we’ve compiled a list of our favorite celebrity parents who are also feminists, including Susan Sarandon, Alan Alda, and of course, Angelina Jolie. (Sorry, Patricia Heaton. I don’t think we can put you on this list, if you know what I mean.)
We applaud these parents for using their public image to promote the well-being of women, from recent Academy Award winner Meryl Streep, who is planning on opening a Women’s History Museum in the future, to Whoopi Goldberg, who famously posed in Ms. magazine wearing a shirt that said, “This is what a feminist looks like.” Others, like Tina Fey and Geena Davis, have publicly spoken about the need to create better roles in film and TV for women.
Check out our photo gallery here and tell us what you think. How are you celebrating International Women’s Day? Do you plan on doing something special with your daughters?
