‘OITNB' Star Matt McGorry Wore The Best Shirt For International Women's Day

Matt McGorry, everyone's favorite male feminist and star of “Orange Is the New Black,” designed the perfect T-shirt for International Women's Day (March 8).

The T-shirt offers a very apt description of what being a feminist really entails and will clear things up for anyone who's still confused about the definition of feminism.

McGorry is selling the T-shirt for $22.99 and plans to donate the proceeds to NARAL Pro-Choice America, an organization dedicated to promoting reproductive rights.

The “OITNB” star has been a vocal and proud feminist for quite some time now, but it wasn't always this way.

In March 2015, he wrote a post on Facebook admitting he didn't always understand the definition of feminism.

He said,

I'm embarrassed to admit that I only recently discovered the ACTUAL definition of ‘feminism'. The fact that the term is sometimes clouded with anything other than pure support and positivity in our society is very tragic. I believe in gender equality. Being a feminist is for both women AND men. I AM A FEMINIST. In for equality? Pass it on – ‪#‎LeanInTogether‬ ‪#‎LeanIn‬ ‪#‎IAmAFeminist‬ ‪#‎HeForShe‬

McGorry also posted this photo.

McGorry obviously understands what feminism truly means now, and he's doing a wonderful job being an advocate for gender equality. It's great when people in the world of entertainment utilize their star power to further benevolent causes.

Happy International Women's Day!
