    @JustinTrudeau I need to give you a #HeforShe badge of honor sir. I am such big fan of yours. #IWD2016 #thisiswhatafeministlookslike

    Trudeau's government also announced Tuesday that it would be tackling the dude dominance of Canadian bank notes and putting a woman who isn't the Queen on a bill.

    I'm pleased to announce that the next new Canadian banknote will feature a woman. Who will it be? That’s up to you: https://t.co/BJcQl5YdMm

    People were digging that, too.

    WTF, he's hot and a feminist. Why, Canada? Why do you do this to me? https://t.co/amM3IUTnwS

    It's not the first time Trudeau has touted his feminism. In January, Trudeau said people shouldn't be afraid of the word feminist during a discussion at the Davos economic forum.
