Actress Salma Hayek doesn’t want to be called a feminist.
On Monday in Beverly Hills, Hayek was honored as a women’s rights advocate at Equality Now’s Make Equality Reality event.
Despite that, and her continued work on behalf of women worldwide including co-founding Chime for Change, “a global campaign to convene, unite and strengthen the voices speaking out for girls and women around the world,” Hayek does not want to be called a feminist.
“I am not a feminist,” she said to People. “If men were going through the things women are going through today, I would be fighting for them with just as much passion. I believe in equality.”
