12 Times Celebrities Called People Out For Their Sexism

Sexism is a problem that still pervades everything in this world. Nowhere is this more evident than in the world of celebrities, where females are not only placed under the scrutiny of the media, but they’re often subjected to questions that highlight the problems our society still has with gender. Below is a list of the fifteen best examples of women being subjected to the sexism evident in this world, calling them out for the sexist things they’re being put through.

8. In no other career would it be appropriate to ask someone if they were wearing underwear. Scarlett Johansson makes it clear it shouldn’t be alright if you’re an actor either

While many of these responses are quite funny, these women are helping highlight a very real problem that all women have to grapple with. Please, do your bit to fight against sexism and always be thinking about your pre-conceived notions on gender. It’s never too late to learn.
