Take Note Nicki: 10 Famous Feminists Who Use Their Platforms To Uplift Other Women

- By

Solange Knowles

Never one to conform to what the mainstream deems as acceptable for women, Solange Knowles has made it a point through her entire career to do what she wants and put the fierce determination of women front and center.

Her outspoken nature is the perfect platform for her to speak about the issues impacting women and she puts those themes into her music as well. In one of her most revealing interviews to date, Knowles firmly cemented her status as a proud feminist and as a woman who supports other women at all costs:

“I am a proud black feminist and womanist and I’m extremely proud of the work that’s being done. I’m a feminist who wants not only to hear the term intersectionality, but actually feel it, and see the evolution of what intersectional feminism can actually achieve. I want women’s rights to be equally honored, and uplifted, and heard…but I want to see us fighting the fight for all women — women of color, our LGBTQ sisters, our Muslim sisters.”
