The Top 10 Hottest Politically Active Babes

I'm writing this prior to the election results in the United States but I want to be clear that this isn't a top ten about who supports who in the POTUS race but rather those celebrity women who roll up their sleeves and get their hands dirty (OK, they shake hands with the dirty masses while promoting positive agendas that will affect those who don't have a voice due to lack of money or fame) in the effort to promote progress. I'm limiting this mainly to those ladies in the states, although I applaud every woman across the world who puts up with shit while trying to speak with ideals.

#10 - Katy Perry

I know, I know. In most worlds, Katy Perry would be at the top of a top ten list. However, Perry's political involvement thus far has been limited to performing in star & stripes for Independence Day concerts celebrating the troops and dressing up as Hillary Clinton for Halloween this year. OK, so she to UNLV to encourage students to vote, not only for POTUS but also Senators and Congress members as well.

#9 - Anne Hathaway

Hathaway definitely dialed back on the politics after taking some heat for expressing her political beliefs back in 2008, when she was still hungry for Oscar gold. Anne spoke out against the war and has been persistent in more recent years with women's health initiatives and the promotion of gender equality in the workplace.

#8 - Aisha Tyler

Aisha Tyler uses that silky smooth, sexy voice of hers for more than just bringing Lana Kane to live on Archer, she's also a big time player in the politics of environmental issues and has been a vocal supporter of Planned Parenthood, in addition to moderating events at the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation Annual Legislative Conference.

#7 - Kerry Washington

She's not just a political dynamo on TV, she's living it in real life as well. A member of the Creative Coalition, one of Hollywood's highest profile political groups, Washington has helped to support First Amendment rights in the industry, as well as arts advocacy and public education (think of those who are working hard to get music & arts programs back into the public school curriculum). She also traveled to Tampa with her father to help people get registered to vote.

#6 - Gabrielle Union

Long before she was thwarting Kirsten Dunst's lofty goals of cheerleading glory, Gabrielle Union was a hard-working college student like many of us, surviving on grants and student loans (don't forget, Union was 27 when she played a teenager in that movie). She has spoken at a number of college campuses to get students involved in the process of voting and supporting the Pell grants and other assistance for those looking to complete their higher education without going into severe debt.

#5 - Angelina Jolie

I hesitate to bring up Angie right now, considering the light shed recently on the unhappy side of her personal life, but there really is no one else who comes close to her work with international politics. As the former Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, Jolie has helped bring more attention to a matter that many in the states were unfamiliar with at best, helping to diffuse some of the misunderstanding about what those who are seeking refugee status are looking for.

#4 - Eva Longoria

In 2008, the former Desperate Housewives star was a big supporter of Obama's race and later was invited in 2012 to speak at the Democratic National Convention, as well as Women's Summits across the US. She's also been one of the biggest names to speak out against unconstitutional immigration laws, putting in time at various events to lend support to fair immigration reform.

#3 - Ashley Judd

One of the more educated members of Hollywood (she holds a master's degree from Harvard University’s John F. Kennedy School of Government), Judd has actively been considering a role in real politics for the past few years, nearly running for Senate in her home state of Kentucky back in 2014. Ashley has also been one of the more vocal women to detail the open sexism toward women in Hollywood and has been a global ambassador for AIDS education and prevention across the world.

#2 - Susan Sarandon

Look past the current political atmosphere and any hurt feelings you might have about what Sarandon has had to say about the presidential election and remember how long she's been saying things that have rubbed people the wrong way. Back in 1993, Susan and Tim Robbins were famously booed for calling out the US Government for running an internment camp in Cuba for the Haitians who were suffering from HIV and AIDS. Love or hate what she says, you still have to admire her conviction and the flack she takes from those who treat her as if she's speaking out of turn.

#1 - Shailene Woodley

Right now, I'm severely impressed with Woodley, who has always been a bit on the crunchy granola side of things but got into the thick of it with the protesters in North Dakota, where she was arrested on grounds of trespassing & engaging in a riot (watch the video of her Facebook Live feed and tell me if she looked riotous to you) on October 10th, Indigenous Peoples' Day. In her response to Time magazine after the arrest, Shailene stated, "We grow up romanticizing native culture, native art, native history… without knowing native reality." She went on to point out the obvious - that until a well-known, non-native, white woman was arrested, the media was largely ignoring what was going on in North Dakota. As John Greene said about the actress, "Shailene walks the walk." Even if you disagree with her, you have to admire that she's not just sitting around, ignorant and complacent in life.
