It's good to see people from Hollywood are also using their fame to shed light on social causes happening around the world right now. Here is the list of empowered females you can look up to as role models.
- Emma Watson
In a patriarchal society, Emma Watson embraces gender equality and empowers women all over the globe. She recently went to Malawi as she sheds light on the social issue of the need to end child marriage and restoring the future of young girls.
"Fine. Call me a 'diva', call me a 'feminazi', call me 'difficult', call me a "First World feminist', call me whatever you want, it's not going to stop me from trying to do the right thing and make sure that the right thing happens." —Emma Watson (via esquire)
- Demi Lovato
Demi Lovato may have had some ups and downs when she was struggling with her body image. But remember when Demi had a photo shoot where she has no clothes, no make up, and most importantly, no retouching? This is an empowering moment for the Confident singer as she brought confidence to be bare and feel comfortable in her own skin.
"I have insecurities about my arms, so to wear a tank top on stage is extremely liberating for me, and uncomfortable sometimes. It's also a statement, like, "Hey, watch out. You're no longer getting the insecure Demi that you've been getting for the past couple of years. I mean business now." —Demi Lovato (via allure)
- Alicia Keys
You may have noticed that Alicia Keys stopped wearing makeup in public. She got sick of trying to be perfect and decided to embrace herself and go bare as she supports the #NoMakeup movement, and seems to have stuck to her decision as you can see her on The Voice, makeup-free, and even when men on the show also wears them.
"I hope to God it's a revolution. 'Cause I don't want to cover up anymore. Not my face, not my mind, not my soul, not my thoughts, not my dreams, not my struggles, not my emotional growth. Nothing" —Alicia Keys (via lennyletter)
- Angelina Jolie
Angelina may have won the award for favorite villain at the 2015's Kid's Choice Award, but this Goodwill ambassador won the humanitarian award in our hearts. Angelina is the woman every girl should aspire to be with her charitable work, advocacies, and her voice as she is well aware of the social issues of the world.
- Rowan Blanchard
This child actress who plays the protagonist of Disney's Girl Meets World, broke free from the child-star stereotypes and uses social media to express her views and opinions on certain social issues. She inspires her young audience to have a voice and be aware of the issues happening around them.
