Whether it be on her TV show or in interviews, Amy Schumer has ignited loads of important conversations about the world we live in today and her latest has gotten the co-sign of several celebrities.

An image that compared two current covers of Girls' Life and Boys' Life magazines went viral last week for all the wrong reasons. Girls' Life promised to give readers "dream hair," "fall fashion you'll love," and how they can "wake up pretty!" Meanwhile, the latter's top story was encouraging young men to "Explore Your Future" amid an image collage of computers, airplanes, stethoscopes, brains and more. 

Schumer shared the image and captioned the post with "No." See below:

A slew of other A-listers joined the conversation with Blake Lively re-posting Amy's photo, saying, "I second that emotion. Ladies, let's not let this happen anymore..." Katie Holmes shared Lively's photo, adding the hashtag, "#thisneedstochange."

We hope the conversation puts some necessary heat on magazines like Girls' Life and pushes them to make some big changes in their subject matter. We're keeping the conversation going by looking at the gender divide in EDM with Alison Wonderland, Paul Oakenfold, Nicole Moudaber, Dada Life, Yellow Claw and more below:
