Hollywood powerhouse Nicole Kidman has declared herself a proud feminist at the Variety Power of Women Event.
She joined Charlize Theron, Kerry Washington, Elizabeth Banks and Jennifer Hudson at the gala that recognised their collective humanitarian work.
In a speech, Nicole admitted, "I was raised by a feminist mother. And yes, she said, 'Never be frightened about using the F-word'. So I'm not.
"She believes in the sisterhood, and so do I. And she planted the seed in me early to speak out against the fact that women are so often treated differently than men."
The Australian actress added, "No matter how long I devote my time to this, I still cannot comprehend that one in three girls in their lifetime will be beaten, abused, or raped. It's just an unbelievable statistic".
Nicole also spoke about the recent incident where she was knocked down by a member of the paparazzi on a bike.
She said, "I was shaken up, but put it in hands of the police. It shows what can happen and how dangerous it is, and how out of control a lot of them are, so I'm glad those laws were passed in California to protect the children."
Nicole is referring to the recent bill supported by Halle Berry and Jennifer Garner to protect the children of Hollywood celebs.
