I'm a feminist, so I believe in a woman's right to choose to make a sandwich or not make a sandwich. Her body, her sandwich fixings, her choice!

Personally, I hate cooking and yes, I include "making a sandwich" under the umbrella of "cooking." But I appreciate a male ally even more than I hate making sandwiches, and it doesn't hurt when that male ally is also famous and fine. Here are seven celebrities of the male persuasion who have passionately supported gender equality, and as a result, I would passionately make them a sandwich. Just one, though. I've got shit to do.

1) Mark Ruffalo

In 2013, the Kids Are All Right actor penned an open letter in which he staunchly defended reproductive rights and described his own mother's illegal abortion. You can read the whole thing here but here's a snippet:

I am a man. I could say this has nothing to do with me. Except I have two daughters and I have a mother who was forced to illegally have an abortion in her state where abortion was illegal when she was a very young woman. It cost $600 cash. It was a traumatizing thing for her. It was shameful and sleazy and demeaning. When I heard the story I was aghast by the lowliness of a society that would make a woman do that. I could not understand its lack of humanity; today is no different.
