Shailene Woodley Is Challenging Gender Stereotypes & Distancing Herself From The "F" Word! Listen To Her Interesting Views On Feminism HERE!

shailene woodley badass feminist sterotypes

Shailene Woodley is truly turning into one badass female!

Instead of attaching herself to the trendy word "feminism" like most of today's young actresses, the Divergent star is actually distancing herself from it—and for good reason!

In a new Times article released Monday, Shailene reveals that she doesn't consider herself a feminist, in part, because she looooves men!

The Fault In Our Stars cutie revealed that there needs to be a balance of power for unity and success:

"I think the idea of ‘raise women to power, take the men away from the power’ is never going to work out because you need balance. With myself, I’m very in touch with my masculine side. And I’m 50 percent feminine and 50 percent masculine, same as I think a lot of us are. Also I think that if men went down and women rose to power, that wouldn’t work either. We have to have a fine balance."

And just because she doesn't like the F—word doesn't mean she can't appreciate and preach to the ladies! Shai believes that women should support each other and band together, as opposed to fighting for power:

"My biggest thing is really sisterhood more than feminism. I don’t know how we as women expect men to respect us because we don’t even seem to respect each other. There’s so much jealousy, so much comparison and envy. And 'This girl did this to me and that girl did that to me.' And it’s just so silly and heartbreaking in a way."

You hear that girls?? Maybe this Emmy-nominated actress has a point!

For the most part, she's chosen strong female roles that kick stereotypes in the face, so she's leading the charge for a great example…

LOVE her!

    She needs to be educated before she speaks. the "f" word has nothing to do with replacing men with women - it is BALANCE

    Instead of parading her ignorance she needs to find out what feminism is…………

    Feminism is about EQUALITY of the sexes. it is not about females being better than males.
    If someone asked her "do you think men are women should be treated equal?" I'm pretty sure she (and most people) would say yes!
    This is so dangerous of her to say and even worse that her (very) misinformed opinion is supported on here!

    So this woman works in Hollywood where there are very few female directors the parts for women are girlfriend, slut, whore, rape victim always naked while men keep their clothes on etc… females are paid much less then their male co-stars I could go on but I won't. Now we know what you are I will be sure to never support you how on earth can you say women are trying to take power from men when they have almost none and nothing has changed in Hollywood. As for the real world women are harassed, sexually assaulted in huge numbers battered and murdered by their partners but don't worry about them shailene. This is your typical girl who doesn't want to say a word to offend men and doesn't give a shit about what women go through. Feminism is about being treated with dignity and fairness and respect that men get without question.

    she needs to be educated on the definition of feminism…she is one lol and there is nothing wrong with that….:)

    Someone give this bitch an encyclopedia or something, because she needs to educate herself before she speaks!

    Oh no no no, shush Shailene. Someone needs to do some research before speaking. This whole distancing one's self from the F word is so wrongheaded. It's a shame that young girls might hear this and be influenced. Fail.

  8. Carolyn says – reply to this


    And no, she is not 'challenging gender stereotypes' Perez. Your headlines are getting so sloppy.

    Ugh, no. Just no. She needs to be educated as to what feminism actually is. No one is trying to take all power from men and give it to women, it's all about balance. She clearly has no idea what she's talking about and neither fo you for representing it this way.

    You know I love you, but do you even understand what feminism means?! It is not raising women up at the expense of men, it is about equality! Making sure women are equal to men, not more or less! You shouldn't be agreeing with her, you should be educating her on what feminism and equality truly mean.

  11. Kim says – reply to this


    Basically balance is feminism, in the literal sense. These days hardcore feminist don't seem like they want balance. I agree with what she says in the way that feminism is portrayed. A lot of hardcore feminist (I am in no way saying all, for the love of god) would like nothing better, than to rise above all men, move them underground, and use them for basic reproduction needs. (Boy Meets World reference, haha) Anyway getting back to the point, calling her 'this bitch' or 'this slut' or saying 'she needs an encyclopedia slapped at her' isn't really going with what some claim feminism is. When you look at feminism from an outside view, it does appear to be a 'We Art Hollier Than Men' attitude. Basically what you are doing is exactly what she says she hates about feminism, which in turn validates her point. Me? Call me what you like, feminism for me is allowing women to have opinions even if it is objectively and not all together right.

    I came on to say exactly what the other posters are saying… I am happy I am not the only one who objects to this ignorant idea of feminism

  13. Miranda says – reply to this


    Girl, I really like you but you ARE a feminist. Feminism is EXACTLY what you just described.

  14. Denise says – reply to this


    All she has shown is that she is truly ignorant. Feminism is not about 'taking power away from men'. It is not about man hating. Gods, this is just sad.

    feminism means equality of the sexes…

  17. colby cooper says – reply to this


    she is a very smart women. I support her position. I find it ironic that the liberals who preach tolerance are bashing her because of her personal opinions. Modern day feminism is not about equality at all. Im glad someone in Hollywood understands this….

  18. Stephanie says – reply to this


    I'm 13 and I even know the definition of feminism; it's equality. I'm losing respect for Shailene.
