It’s a male-dominated world, regardless of the ecosystem, be it the corporate world, business world, or even entertainment, every industry has had countless battles of women been seen in a negative light. The narrative needs be changed and voices are rising to the occasion.
Hot Girl Summer rapper Megan Thee Stallion has had it and apart from dishing multiple hit tracks has now earned repute for speaking up for the black woman. In a chat with Glamour as one of their “Woman of The Year” for 2021, she opened up about her impact choosing to speak up against a system that chooses to silence the womenfolk.
According to the 26-year-old;
“The bigger I get, the bigger my platform gets, I start realizing that I’m not the only woman that goes through what I go through, and it doesn’t matter what scale it’s on. Mine is just public because I’m a public figure. I want to bring things to light so other women don’t feel like they have to continue to be silent.”
Explaining further, Megan There Stallion didn’t hold back, saying women get criticized for being vocal about what they experience.
“As soon as a woman starts speaking up for herself, there’s an immediate attack. People don’t like it when you are strong and you standing up for yourself. I stand on what I say. I’m very solid, and I’m very thorough. If I have to be the example, I will be.”
Recall the singer has an ongoing legal battle against Tory Lanez being charged with felony assault for allegedly shooting Megan Thee Stallion on July 12th, 2020.
In an op-ed for The New York Times, Megan There Stallion wrote:
“We live in a country where we have the freedom to criticize elected officials. And it’s ridiculous that some people think the simple phrase “Protect Black women” is controversial. We deserve to be protected as human beings. And we are entitled to our anger about a laundry list of mistreatment and neglect that we suffer.”
