Actress Sarah Jessica Parker does not consider herself a feminist.
The former “Sex And The City” star took on hot topics like feminism for her cover story in the September issue of “Marie Claire” magazine.
“I am not a feminist. I don’t think I qualify. I believe in women and I believe in equality, but I think there is so much that needs to be done that I don’t even want to separate it anymore,” she said. “I’m so tired of separation. I just want people to be treated equally.”

Parker, whose new show “Divorce” debuts on HBO in the fall, also weighed in on the gender gap issue.
“I would like all of that nonsense to end,” she said. “I would like women to get paid for the value of their contributions, not by old-fashioned ideas about gender.”
The 51 year-old actress said she appreciates other actresses who are speaking out about women’s issues.
“Jennifer Lawrence deserves every bit as much as her male counterpart. It’s indisputable. Emma Watson is an amazing young woman, and it’s important for her to talk about women’s issues. She isn’t concerned about herself,” Parker said. “Women are paying the bills, getting it done, getting the kids here and there. The more we address that, we are all going to be better.”
Feminists and liberals on social media may not have been too happy with Parker’s words. After all, the actress is best known for her role on a television series that was all about empowering women.

Maybe Parker should read President Obama’s essay on being a feminist.
