30. She goes way wrong in her interpretation of female empowerment

 

In a world that’s already disturbingly oversexualized, they insist that sexual display and promiscuity (dare I use that word?) are synonymous with female empowerment.


Female empowerment takes many forms. I wouldn't dare say Madonna or Lady Gaga aren't entirely powerful women even as they fully explore that power through "sexual display" and yes, even "promiscuity" (lol).

It's not all or nothing. Women can be powerful like Hillary Clinton and they can be powerful like Jennifer Laurence and they can be powerful like Beyoncé.

I'll take all of the above please.
