In the wake of the UCSB massacre, #YesAllWomen is turning the world's eyes toward the blatant misogyny women experience every single day, and some of your favorite celebrities are sharing their stories and thoughts.
Felicia Day, Gabourey Sidibe, Lucas Neff, Sophia Bush, James Van Der Beek and Lena Dunham all tweeted their own #YesAllWomen messages, with Mara Wilson weighing in on Facebook.
When a woman makes a video, most comments are about tearing apart her looks. Or if they'd "do" her. With a man, almost none. #YesAllWomen— Felicia Day (@feliciaday) May 26, 2014
I can't stop reading all of the #YesAllWomen tweets. I'm so moved by so many of them.— Gabourey Sidibe (@GabbySidibe) May 26, 2014
The fact that there is no "Matronizing" tells you all you need to know about the gender history of dominant power structures #YesAllWomen— Lucas Neff (@RealLucasNeff) May 26, 2014
I shouldn't have to hold my car keys in hand like a weapon & check over my shoulder every few seconds when I walk at night #YesAllWomen— Sophia Bush (@SophiaBush) May 25, 2014
#YesAllWomen Because recognition of human dignity elevates all of us.— James Van Der Beek (@vanderjames) May 26, 2014
In high school a very disturbed boy told me if I didn't choose to love him he would make me, followed by a series of graphic threats...— Lena Dunham (@lenadunham) May 26, 2014
... My school handled it quickly and never questioned how I'd "provoked" him and it told me that I matter. I wish that for every woman.— Lena Dunham (@lenadunham) May 26, 2014
Not so much joining in on the #YesAllWomen bandwagon are Seth Rogen and Judd Apatow, who slammed Washington Post writer Ann Hornaday for saying movies like Neighbors and others help create a culture that objectifies women.
Other non-celebs weighed in, sharing their own disturbing everyday experiences on what it's like to be a woman in a culture that still perpetuates sexism in both subtle and obvious ways.
At about 14 years old, a man followed me from his car. I had to run the opposite direction and hide behind a dumpster. #YesAllWomen— Alyssa Rios (@AlyWoah) May 27, 2014
#YesAllWomen because being called a Feminist should not be used as an insult.— Dani Horbiak (@Dani516) May 27, 2014
Because I've been afraid to speak out about sexual harassment in my work environment in fear of being labeled "problematic" #YesAllWomen— Brittany Pawlowski (@BrittPawlowski) May 27, 2014
Because "friend zoned" implies that a woman is not free to refuse a man without being accused of exiling him "unfairly". #YesAllWomen— Tara (@HillHouseRock) May 27, 2014
