Reese Witherspoon: In addition to her fierce on-screen feminist heroics as Legally Blonde's Elle Woods (who will return to the screen for a third movie in 2020), Witherspoon is actively working to amplify more female voices — and more diverse female voices — with her film, TV, podcast, and book projects through Hello Sunshine, her women-centric production company.
She's also involved in various women's advocacy organizations, including the YWCA, UN Women, and Time's Up, which she helped launch in 2018. "We have been siloed off from each other," she told the New York Times of teaming up with the likes of Shonda Rhimes and Eva Longoria on the project. "We're finally hearing each other, and seeing each other, and now locking arms in solidarity with each other, and in solidarity for every woman who doesn't feel seen, to be finally heard."
