The photo series featured a number of celebrities and politicians wearing shirts that said  This is what a feminist looks like to highlight the issue of gender equality.

Tom Hiddleston, actor, ELLE cover star, ELLE writer and feminist

It's amazing to see how many men participated! Tom Hiddleston has always been very vocal about supporting women: whether it's his family members, his co-stars, or global movements.
.@EmWatson you are impeccable & extraordinary. I stand with you. I believe in gender equality.

You can read a more detailed account of Tom Hiddleston work with gender equality in the Leading Lady Parts post.


The This is what a feminist looks like shirt seen is the photo series was sold to raise money for the Fawcett Society, Britain's largest women's advocacy group. The Fawcett Society campaigns for women's rights and gender equality. The shirts were originally sold by fashion retailer, Whistles, but was quickly removed due to unethical manufacturing practices.  You can still purchase items directly from the Fawcett Society with the This is what a feminist looks like slogan with profits supporting the charity.
