Who doesn’t love a Feminist quote or two? Check out these surprising quotes from famous men, because fighting the patriarchy is cool no matter what’s between your legs.

1. “Women make up one half of society. Our society will remain backward and in chains unless its women are liberated, enlightened and educated.”

– Saddam Hussein

2. “I call myself a Feminist. Isn’t that what you call someone who fights for women’s rights?” – Dalai Lama

3. “And since we all came from a woman
Got our name from a woman and our game from a woman
I wonder why we take from our women
Why we rape our women, do we hate our women?
I think it’s time to kill for our women,
Time to heal our women, be real to our women
And if we don’t we’ll have a race of babies
That will hate the ladies, that make the babies
And since a man can’t make one
He has no right to tell a woman when and where to create one
So will the real men get up
I know you’re fed up ladies, but keep your head up.”

– 2pac, keep your head up

4. “I’m not ashamed to dress “like a woman” because I don’t think it’s shameful to be a woman.” – Iggy Pop

5. “We know that when women are empowered, they immeasurably improve the lives of everyone around them – their families, their communities, and their countries. This is not just about women, we men need to recognize the part we play too. Real men treat women with dignity and give them the respect they deserve.”

– Prince Harry
