These women talk about feminism, but I feel Rihanna lives it. She doesn’t tend to speak up about gender equality and other major issues, but she embodies one of the most important acts of feminist: to be yourself and not feel you have to apologise for it.
This is evident in everything she does... What her critics are missing is that her actions are brave. Like Madonna in the 80s, she’s defying the status quo. She is showing women that they don’t have to conform to society’s idea of femininity...That ultimately, their bodies are theirs and they have the right to do what they want with them.
