“Human rights are women’s rights, and women’s rights are human rights. Let us not forget that among those rights are the right to speak freely--and the right to be heard.”
- Hillary Clinton

Little Mix

"Years ago we went to a radio event in America, full of VIPs, someone from our U.S. label Columbia said, 'Go and flirt with all those important men.' I was like, 'f*k off.' Why have I got to go in and flirt to get my song on the radio? We were told by one massive producer in the U.S. that we shouldn't be writing, that we should just be given songs, we realised we — as women — have to work 10 times as hard. We still face sexism in the industry. We've been told what we should and shouldn't do. We learned to put our foot down and make sure we are taken seriously as four strong women who have opinions. It's been a struggle. There are still not enough powerful women in the industry compared to men and that needs to change. There still is a lot that needs to be done in the music industry, but in terms of our careers we are in the driver's seat more than ever because we speak up for ourselves, we stick together and make sure our opinions are treated as validly as any man's. When women have a voice, some people think that opinion is invalid.”

Taylor Swift

"I think about this a lot. When I was a teenager, I would hear people talk about sexism in the music industry, and I'd be like, I don't see it. I don't understand. Then I realized that was because I was a kid. Men in the industry saw me as a kid. I was a lanky, scrawny, overexcited young girl who reminded them more of their little niece or their daughter than a successful woman in business or a colleague. The second I became a woman, in people's perception, was when I started seeing it. It's fine to infantilize a girl's success and say, How cute that she's having some hit songs. How cute that she's writing songs. But the second it becomes formidable? As soon as I started playing stadiums—when I started to look like a woman—that wasn't as cool anymore."

"Being "empowered"...... is not the same as being a "b*ch"... HAVING SOMETHING TO SAY...... is not the same as HAVING A BAD ATTITUDE.... what I meant when I said what I said about not being Sean's ex is that I am tired of living in a world where women are mostly referred to as a man's past, present or future PROPERTY / POSSESSION. I... do not. belong. to anyone. but myself. and neither do you. If a women has a lot of s*x .... she's a "sl*t". If a man has s*x..... HE'S. A. STUD. a BOSSSSSS. a KING. If a woman even TALKS about s*x openly.... she is shamed! But if a man talks or RAPS freely about all the women (or more commonly used "b*ches"/"h*es"... how lovely) he's had... he is regaled. If a woman is seen with a friend with a p*is, there is an immediate assumption of romance or s*x and she is labeled!! If a man is seen with a woman... his status is elevated / celebrated. "AWW SH*T HE SMASHED!!! I know y'all already know this but the double standard and misogyny are still ever present. I can't wait to live in a world where people are not valued by who they're dating / married to / attached to, having s*x with (or not) / seen with.... but by their value as an individual."

Megan Fox

"In Hollywood, you don't want to show weakness as a woman because it is such a misogynistic industry. To ever go to work and be like, 'I have debilitating cramps,' you can't do that. You can't be like, 'Can I have a hot water bottle for my stomach?' You have to act like you're a superhero in order to be taken seriously or put on an equal playing field as the men. As soon as you like have a woman's body and have women's issues, it's like, 'Oh, you're a hazard for us," basically. So you just have to pretend that you're a lot stronger than you are a lot of the time."

"Men are free and women are not. The old lessons of submissiveness and fragility made us victims. [But] women are so much more than that. You can be a businesswoman, a mother, an artist, and a feminist – whatever you want to be – and still be a sexual being. It’s not mutually exclusive. Being that I am a woman in a male-dominated society, the feminist mentality rang true to me and became a way to personalise that struggle. I had more on my mind than the relationships "between a woman and a man … What I'm really referring to, and hoping for, is [overall] human rights and equality. It's meant as a vision for anyone "who considers themselves an oppressed minority … to be just who we want to be and to love who we want to love".
