She currently stars in the West End stage version of Made In Dagenham, which follows the story of the Ford sewing machinist strike back in 1968 over the equal pay dispute.

And Gemma Arterton has made it clear that she is passionate about gender equality along with the many female celebrities who have been speaking publicly about their views.

However, the actress did admit that being a feminist seems to be ‘in fashion’ at present because people are following their favourite celebrities.

Gemma made the comments on her upcoming appearance on Alan Carr Chatty Man after the funny man asked if she was happy her play was on stage during a time when feminism is on the rise.

She laughed and replied: ‘Feminism is in fashion, as made by Beyonce and Taylor Swift, now that they’re feminists, everyone else is [laughs]’.

Alan asked: ‘Why do you think feminisms having such an impact?’

The actress mused: ‘I don’t know – I think social media has helped a lot, people like Caitlin Moran have changed everything, Lena Dunham, so there’s loads of people who are being more outspoken and being listened to and having an influence. I think it’s great.’

On Tuesday, Gemma joined the original Dagenham campaigners who spearheaded the famous dispute to help with an equal pay gap rally.

The 28-year-old actress was one of many at the Houses of Parliament in London to highlight the gender pay gap, which Labour claimed resulted in women earning £210,000 less over a lifetime than men.

Speaking about being in Parliament, Gemma admitted: ‘It was cold. Yeah, it’s huge – it’s very cavernous, The Great Hall and everything – it’s so old obviously, so it’s all stone and wood.

‘But no, it was great, I wish I could have explored a bit further, gone off track, nosed around a bit, but it’s beautiful inside.’

As for whether she ran away from Ed Milliband, she said: ‘I did leave early, yes. No well it’s – I’m not a Labour supporter, so I wanted to make sure I didn’t give the wrong impression.’

You can watch Gemma, Mrs Browns Boy’s star Brendan O’Carroll, Greg Davies and Tom Odell on Alan Carr Chatty Man on December 19 at 10pm.
