By now, the image of 25-year-old model and actress Emily Ratajkowski has crossed everyone's path at least once or twice. The breakout star of Robin Thicke's "remember that one?" single 'Blurred Lines', Ratajkowski appeared in films like Gone Girl, Entourage, and last year's unfortunate EDM flop We Are Your Friends. But along with her films, modeling appearances, and Instagram flashes, Ratajkowski has become an increasingly political and social figure for her outward and proud sexual freedom while still keeping in line with her ardent beliefs. As of recent, she's spoken at a rally for former Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, and become a proactive donor and advocate for Planned Parenthood, which, unsurprisingly, drew the ire of many.

In an essay for Glamour, Ratajkowski spoke about her expanding celebrity, along with many of the "sexist double-standards" that are ever-prominent in both entertainment, politics, and far too many other walks of life for women of all ages and backgrounds.

On speaking at a Sanders rally, she writes: "I realized then that I’ve been called an attention whore so often that I had almost gotten used to it. And as women we are accused of seeking attention more than men are, whether for speaking out politically, as I did, for dressing a certain way, or for even posting a selfie. Our culture has a double standard that runs so deep, many women have actually built up an automatic defense—attempting to be a step ahead of potential critics by making sure we have 'real' reasons for anything we say or do."

Along with tackling issues regarding public appearance, Ratajkowski culminates her powerful words with: "The ideal feminist world shouldn’t be one where women suppress their human instincts for attention and desire. We shouldn’t be weighed down with the responsibility of explaining our every move. We shouldn’t have to apologize for wanting attention either. We don’t owe anyone an explanation. It’s not our responsibility to change the way we are seen—it’s society’s responsibility to change the way it sees us."
