Jessica Chastain is no stranger to feminism. She’s been very vocal about empowering women and equal rights. She even participated in the Women’s March in Washington and is a proud advocate for the #MeToo and Time’s Up movements.
Chastain was interviewed by Entertainment Tonight to discuss her involvement in the Time’s Up movement:
Recently, Chastain posted a photo of herself on Instagram in celebration of International Women’s Day. In the post, she is wearing a t-shirt with the slogan “We Should All Be Feminists” written across the front.
She captioned her post with the following message: “FEMINISM: the theory of the political, economic and social equality of the sexes.”
Of course, Chastain got a lot of praise for the post, but, as celebrities usually do, she also received some backlash. She ignored her haters with the exception of one commenter named Karin Schulz.
In response to Chastain’s post, Schulz wrote, “Yes, feminist that believe in God and stand up for The Unborn. I would be for that kind of feminist.”
Rather than write off Schultz’s remarks or respond in a knee-jerk way, Chastain took the time to research Schultz and then formed an unbelievable response.
