The Most Inspiring Celebrity Feminist Quotes of 2014

This article is definitely a fluff piece and there are many, many supporters of equal gender rights out there who are far more qualified to speak on the topic, but on a personal level, the quotes included gave me just a little bit of hope. The vast majority of the celebrities included are very influential, particularly on young women. Emma Watson, Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus – young people today grew up with these women. We fell in love with Hermione, belted out all the woes of being “Sixteen” with Taylor and followed the crazy rolle-coaster life of Hannah Montana.  These are the heroes of today’s “tweens”, and so it is really refreshing to see them, and others, use their fame and fortune to speak out in favour of feminism.
