We usually look up to celebrities because of their impeccably styled #OOTDs and blemish-free skin, if not for their obvious acting prowess or God-given talents in singing and dancing. But here, we list down seven lovely ladies who are trying to accomplish more for society instead of just sitting pretty and looking glamorous on television. Read on and meet the famous celebs who are certified proud feminists.

Apparently, this Harry Potter star not only battles dementors. Emma Watson is also fighting for feminism as the UN Women Global Goodwill Ambassador. In her speech on gender equality, she pointed out that feminism should not at all be synonymous to man-hating. “For the record, feminism, by definition, is the belief that men and women should have equal rights and opportunities. It is the theory of political, economic, and social equality of the sexes,” explained Emma.

Tay Sway might have heard that speech of Emma because she for one actually admitted that she once thought feminism is about hating men. But after realizing that it’s all about hoping for both men and women to have equal rights and opportunities, the music superstar promptly claimed that she’s long “been taking a feminist stance without actually saying so."

We may or may not agree on Miley’s blonde pixie makeover and random twerking stunts, but this much we’re sure: She’s a feminist and definitely proud of it. “I feel like I’m one of the biggest feminists in the world, because I tell women to not be scared of anything,” said the popstar.

Queen Bey was once quoted, “I’m a woman and I love being a woman. I do believe in equality and that we have a way to go and it’s something that’s pushed aside and something that we have been conditioned to accept.” In the same interview, she also called herself a modern-day feminist.

The Hollywood star believes that not wanting to become a stay-at-home mother doesn’t necessarily mean that she’s denying her femininity. In an interview with Vogue back in 2012, she said that feminism is simply about women being able to freely make their own choices.

The New Girl star once told Glamour, “I’m just being myself. There is not an ounce of me that believes any of the crap [people] say.” So whenever the media criticizes her for her bubbly and girly image, she just shrugs it off and ignores them. “We can’t be feminine and be feminists and be successful? I want to be a feminist and wear a Peter Pan collar. So what?” said Zooey.

It's not just Hollywood actresses and popstars who are vocal about their stance on feminism. Apparently, even supermodel Cara Delevingne is all about girl power. In a recent article from Teen Vogue, the 22-year-old spoke freely about the male-dominated industry and how it annoys her that men perceive women innacurately. "Even if I'm wrong, even if I get shut down, I know that I've done my part to get a woman's voice out there," said Cara.
