Salma Hayek Receives Award For Fighting For Women’s Equality, But Says “I’m Not A Feminist”

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.”
