#Empowered ~ Beyoncé
A big Happy Birthday to Queen B! Beyoncé turned 36 this week, in case you did not know!
Beyoncé has always been an icon: whether it is for her fashion choices, her outspoken personality or her music, she has impacted the life of a whole generation.
Self-proclaimed feminist, Bey has vastly spoken about what Feminism means to her. She is largely involved with Chime for Change, a charity which focuses on girls’ and women’s empowerment through raising awareness for projects promoting Education, Health and Justice.
When asked about her critics – which argue you cannot be “feminine” like she is and a feminist all at the same time – she hits back: “We all know that’s not true. Choosing to be a feminist has nothing to do with your femininity — or, for that matter, your masculinity”.
"We’re not all just one thing. Everyone who believes in equal rights for men and women doesn’t speak the same, or dress the same, or think the same. If a man can do it, a woman should be able to. It’s that simple."
Beyoncé is the ultimate #Empowered woman, so Happy Birthday Queen B!
