Aziz Ansari, Feminist Celebrity Nominee

Aziz Ansari

Best known for his role as Tom in Parks and Recreation, Aziz Ansari sold out Madison Square Garden twice in one night at the beginning of this year, performing a set that focused heavily on misogyny, Internet cruelty and dating. On his acclaimed new show, Master of None, Aziz has further honed his feminist voice, raising awareness of the lack of diversity in media and even dedicating an entire episode to gender inequality. He has not been afraid to discuss his beliefs publicly either: he explained to David Letterman on The Late Show why those who believe in equality should identify as feminists, discussed the importance of bringing awareness to racism and sexism in an interview with Cosmopolitan, and pointed out why it is important for everyone to learn about women’s experiences with The Daily Beast.
