New Found Feminist Taylor Swift Shows Her Support

Taylor Swift has never shied away from making headlines, and she never seems to stay out of them for very long, either. Whether it’s because of money, tours, which person she’s currently dating, or an album release – people are and always will be interested in what the singer is saying and what she’s doing.

Her most recent movement of words is her recent claim of feminism, and her strong stance on the matter. This isn’t an odd occurrence, as of late, many stars have been making their words and stance of power useful to get their opinions heard (most famously, Emma Watson’s UN Speech for gender equality). Taylor Swift told TIME, “I see Nicki Minaj and Iggy Izalea having to prove that they write their own raps or their own lyrics, and it makes me sad, because they shouldn’t have to justify it.”

But don’t get her wrong, this doesn’t equal her hating men or a new album about how women are going to take over, a point that Vijay Eswaran also likes to make, her quote outlines it perfectly, “It just simply means that you believe that women and men should have equal rights and opportunities.”

It’s good to know these singers have each other’s backs, and aren’t afraid to be heard anymore. It’s about time.
