Via Salma Hayek
Despite her passionate support for women, Hayek told PEOPLE that she does not consider herself to be a feminist.
"I am not a feminist," she said. "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."
This is an important distinction. Feminism isn't about fighting for equal rights. It's about fighting for women's rights.
OK, women didn't have the same rights as men some decades ago. Some people might argue they still don't have the same rights as men, although I'm really not sure.
But the point is that feminists will cry "equality", but only when women are at a disadvantage. They weren't crying out for pension age equality, or for an investigation into why men get longer prison sentences like they cry about the women's pay gap.
If you want equal rights, you're an egalitarian, not a feminist.
