CELEBRITY Feminism

More and more female celebrities are using their platforms and their power to speak out against sexism. Many pop culture figures have become symbols of feminism in a male-dominated industry. Pink is one such example. The singer has always refused to conform to gender stereotypes and has become more and more outspoken over the years.

Most recently, she spoke out in support of the Norwegian women's beach handball team, who were fined by the European Handball Federation for refusing to comply with the uniform regulations. The women's uniform amounts to a sports bra and bikini bottoms, while the men's teams are allowed to wear tank tops and shorts. The Norwegian women's team wore thigh-length elastic shorts at the Euro 2021 tournament, and as such were fined US$1700. The incident has become a hot topic in the media, and Pink was one of the first celebrities to offer her support. She even offered to pay the fine on their behalf, and encouraged them to continue their protest. 

From Emma Watson and Ariana Grande to Margaret Atwood and Jane Fonda, check out which other female figures are making waves for the cause.
