Viral Video Of The Day: Daniel Craig Dresses In Drag To Support Women's Rights

James Bond actor Daniel Craig is known for his badass persona on screen; escaping perilous situations, killing off villains, scaling walls with his bare hands… That kinda thing. But he’s taking on a new role that requires him to wear a long blond wig, patterned dress, black tights, stiletto heels, and pearl earrings.

The 43-year-old stars in a 2-minute short film directed by Sam Taylor-Wood and narrated by Dame Judi Dench. It’s part of a campaign to raise awareness for International Women’s Day, which is this Tuesday, March 8th. Although Craig has not been our favorite in terms of a veg lifestyle— the celeb had bacon flown to him while on set— he has raised money by auctioning off personal items for children in need, and raising $1.5 million for AIDS charities, and we can approve of smart eco-moves like that!

The film shows the 007 actor in a suit while Dench recites facts about inequalities between men and women that still exist in our society. “We’re equals, aren’t we 007?” Dench asks as Craig appears onscreen. “Yet is is 2011 and a man is still likely to earn more money than a woman, even one doing the same job.”

The narration continues, with Craig remaining completely silent. An important move for this video, featuring a woman with a voice and a man being forced to listen. “As a man, you’re less likely to be judged for promiscuous behavior, which is just as well frankly. And hardly any chance of falling victim to sexual assault.” Then Dench adds, “For someone with such a fondness for women, I wonder if you’ve ever considered what it might be like to be one?”

At this question we watch as Craig disappears off camera, then reappears in full on drag. As Craig listens to more facts about what it’s like to be a woman and live on unequal ground, he takes off the wig and earrings and looks straight into the camera for the final question posed to him. “So, are we equals?” Dench asks. “Until the answer is yes, we must never stop asking.”

As a woman this video feels very powerful, and we hope you all will pass it around to spread awareness for this important day and cause! You can also visit the WeAreEquals website for more information.

The outcry should go further than importation and should be directed at the fact that the animals in question were on their way to slaughter in the first place.
