LONDON (AP) - James Bond actor Daniel Craig is giving “Bond girl” a whole new meaning, dressing up in drag for a short film to support International Women’s Day.

The 007 star trades his signature suit for a flowing blond wig, dress, pearls and sensible heels in the somber clip which highlights inequalities faced by women around the world.

The video _ narrated by actress Judi Dench, recreating her role as spymaster M _ notes Bond’s “fondness for women” but asks if the suited spy has “ever considered what it might like to be one.”

A silent Bond reappears on camera and strikes a seemingly confident pose in drag. As M rattles off statistics on sexual violence, education and pay inequality, Craig pulls off the wig and earrings.

He exits the screen when asked “So, are we equals?”
