Maisie Williams delivers an inspiring speech on gender equality!

Slay, Maisie Williams!

The Game of Thrones starlet proved she's just as badass off screen with an inspiring speech on gender equality delivered at the Always #LikeAGirl Confidence Summit in New York on Tuesday.

And she did an amazing job!

The 18-year-old activist asserted:

"It's time for society to stop telling girls what they should and shouldn't do."

She didn't stop there, either! Maisie also remarked:

"It's time for girls to be free; free to nurture and celebrate whatever qualities and talents make them different. It's the most liberating time moving into adulthood. But that transition should not happen with labels and expectations, but with an open heart and mind… Fight for yours, grab it with both hands and hold it like the course of your future depends on it. Because it does. The world is desperate for leaders, male and female. It's not about gender, it's about purpose … Fan your fire, move from your core, and be quick on your feet. Sharp in your mind, gentle in your heart. Be authentic. If you can do all that? Well then get ready for greatness. Chin up, chest out. You are unstoppable. Like a girl."

It's not hard to believe the teen's passionate speech would ring true for at least one girl out there, and hopefully it will inspire!

Brilliant!

Sexism in a nutshell.

The U.S. Women's National Soccer Team scored an epic win over the 4th of July weekend, giving the United States a reason to celebrate.

You certainly don't see that kind of dominance from the country's Men's Soccer team…

So why is it they're getting paid so much less than the male World Cup winners??

And we're not talking about 70 cents on the dollar here!

The total prize money allotted in the Men's World Cup last year was a striking $575 million. But this year's Women's World Cup players will divide just

Cara Delevingne SLAMS Superhero Movies And Says They're 'Totally Sexist'! Decide If You Agree With Her Reasoning!

Cara Delevingne has a LOT to say about superhero flicks!

Cara Delevingne has never been afraid to speak her mind, so we weren't too shocked when she absolutely SLAMMED superhero movies and claimed they were sexist!

The only thing is, she's about to be IN a superhero movie!!

While recently dishing about her upcoming flick, Suicide Squad, Cara talked about how ladies are poorly represented in the superhero genre! She said:

"Female superheroes are normally naked or in bikinis. No one would be able to fight like that. Wonder Woman, how the hell does she fight? She would be dead in a minute."

Preach, sister!!!

Sexism in the superhero/comic book genre goes back for DECADES and many have complained that female characters are often overly sexualized compared to their male counterparts!

It's hard to argue when the tagline for 2004's Catwoman might as well have been "Come see Halle Berry in a sexy leather suit!"

However, we are seeing little bits of progress here and there! For example, Supergirl's outfit turned out to be surprisingly functional and Agent Carter was even picked up for a second season! But sadly both of these are TV shows and NOT films like Cara mentioned!

So naturally we have to ask, what do you think about sexism in superhero movies? Have we made ANY progress over the years?? Sound off in the comments!

Who needs A League Of Their Own anymore when you can beat the boys?!

That's the attitude Melissa Mayeux has, anyways! The 16-year-old from France loves baseball — and she's good at it — so she's doing what any girl should do: trying to play professionally!!!

Mayeux is the first woman in history to sign up for Major League Baseball's international registration list, which means that she — just like thousands of men from around the world — can sign with a Major League team as early as July 2!

no title

It looks like Rose McGowan isn't the only actress who's willing to call out sexism in Hollywood!

Last week, the Charmed star made headlines after she shared an objectifying casting note for an upcoming audition that encouraged her to wear clothes that "showed off cleavage."

The insight into the sexist casting environment sparked a lot of progressive conversation — but unfortunately resulted in the actress getting fired from her agent!

Now, more women are rallying behind the 41-year-old in hopes of changing the underlying misogyny in the industry — including Jessica Chastain!
