Jessica Pare to 'Fashion' Magazine: 'Of Course I'm a Feminist'

Jessica Pare shows off her stunning style in KaufmanFranco on the cover of Fashion magazine’s March 2014 issue, on newsstands February 17.

Here’s what the 33-year-old Mad Men star had to share with the mag:

On if she’s a feminist: “Of course I’m a feminist…if you’re not for the equal treatment of men and women, then you’re a fascist.”

On the fashion influences in Mad Men: “The references are everywhere! Old Vogue photos, Sears Roebuck catalogues and campaigns are taped up in the makeup trailer and dressing room. They inform so much of the characters.”

On her Mad Men character’s fashion transformation: “I wore a lot of bold colours…defined looks that included a lot of fabrics with no pattern. Then, in season five, Megan becomes the boss’s wife and a copywriter, so you see the evolution of her style. She begins to take risks, and has confidence with clothes. She thinks, ‘I can pull anything off!”

That awkward moment when you have enough braincells to understand that feminism does not “own” the concept of equality, nor do you have to be a feminist to believe in equality, you can even see feminism as part of the problem and part of the sexism we see in society.

Awesome Quote of the Day – “You do everything for you and you don’t do anything that considers me !” – Megan Draper on Don Draper in S6 Mad Men.

Funny, ’cause I would never call myself a feminist or a fascist. In fact, I’ve had numerous unpleasant events with them.

I’m a woman and I would never call myself a feminist. I have an awesome dad, 2 amazing brothers, a bunch of cool uncles, and a great brother-in-law that’s there for his wife (my sister) and takes care of his kids (nephew and niece). By calling myself a feminist I would be taking away all the sacrifices they make everyday for the women in my life. I like to think of myself as a humanist. Feminism is not a good thing and I’m surprised whenever actresses call themselves feminist and think they are doing something good. They aren’t.

@sickoffeminism:
Your definition of feminism baffles me and you seem to have gotten it totally wrong; Feminism is about EQUAL rights between MEN AND WOMEN – rights that anyone who opens their eyes can clearly see aren’t put into practice everywhere in the world despite men’s sacrifices. Are you even aware of the fact that feminists fought for you, as a woman, to even be able to air your views freely without being ridiculed/punished or for your male relatives to be able to take care of their family members without being ridiculed in society?
I say all of this with utmost respect, please, get your facts straight and then hopefully you can start feeling empowered instead of sick…Know the original and true definition of feminism (=not hating men, hating inequality and injustice between men and women).

@Laura: @Laura:

That’s what feminism used to be. Now it’s all about hating men.

@Laura:

Why are you trying to shame her into being a feminist? If you truly cared for equal rights you wouldn’t try to force your views on others.

@congrats2020@gmail.com:
Oh come oon, it still IS…:)

@kuntface:
I am not trying to shame anyone into being anything or force my views, that is your opinion which you are very much entitled to; I was stating the definition of feminism and how she’s got it wrong. Why don’t you apply your arguments on what she’s stated:
“By calling myself a feminist I would be taking away all the sacrifices they make everyday for the women in my life. I like to think of myself as a humanist. Feminism is not a good thing and I’m surprised whenever actresses call themselves feminist and think they are doing something good. They aren’t.” Shaming? Forcing? She’s stating that feminists aren’t doing something good due to some men taking care of their families, you may or may not agree.

@Laura:

Wake up honey! it is no coincidence that most feminist are lesbians.
Ellen page has been spewing feminist crap for a while now and it turns out she’s a lesbian. Jessica Pare played a lesbian in a film.
Feminism=lesbianism

@Lesbos:
Hahaha, you know what, Feminists are indeed lesbians- but also people with other sexual preferences/genders/looks etcetera etcetera. I do not need to wake up to understand that fact, time for you to expand your horizon dear. Feminist= FOR equal rights between men and women. Period. No need to complicate the original definition which still holds very true all over the world and which has helped you to air your views. Have good day :)
