OSCAR-NOMINATED ACTOR Jessica Chastain is not one to shy away from voicing her opinion on feminist issues.

Most recently, she fought for fellow actor Octavia Spencer to get a pay rise so that their salaries would be equal.

Now, she’s put her money where her mouth is – again. On International Women’s Day, Chastain shared a photo of herself rocking a “We Should Be Feminists” shirt and captioned it, “FEMINISM: the theory of the political, economic, and social equality of the sexes.”

A woman named Karin Schulz responded to the post and criticised Jessica for being pro-choice, saying:

Yes feminist that believe in God and stand up for The Unborn. I would be for that kind of feminist.”

Jessica responded to the comment and said, “Yes you can decide what is right for you. I am pro-choice and I believe that everyone has the right to make their own decision.

I read about your journey to become a mother and it broke my heart. I hope that your dream will come true in 2018! Much love to you.”

As it turns out, the woman and her husband have been struggling with fertility issues and are crowdfunding to cover their treatments. Following Jessica’s large donation, the page has been flooded with further donations.

Fair play J!
