In an interview with Vogue about her role in Little Women and its relationship with feminism

With Meg’s character, her way of being a feminist is making the choice – because that’s really, for me anyway, what feminism is about. Her choice is that she wants to be a full-time mother and wife. To Jo, being married is really some sort of prison sentence. But Meg says, ‘You know, I love him and I’m really happy and this is what I want. And just because my dreams are different from yours, it doesn’t mean they’re unimportant.’

At an event about the U.N. HeForShe campaign

The more I have spoken about Feminism, the more I have realized that fighting for womens rights too often become synonymous with man-hating. If there is one thing I know for certain it is that this has to stop. [...] I think it is right that as a woman I am paid the same as my male counterparts. [...] I think it is right that women be involved on my behalf in the policies and decisions that will affect my life. [...] [...] sadly I can say there is no one country in the world where all women can expect to receive these rights. No country in the world can yet that they have achieved gender equality. [...] When at 14 I started to be sexualized by certain elements of the media. When at 15 my girlfriends started dropping out of their beloved sports teams because they didn’t want to appear muscly. When at 18 my male friends were unable to express their feelings. I decided I was a feminist, and this seemed uncomplicated to me.
