Ariana Grande Flies Flag For Feminism In Inspiring Twitter Post

As if we didn’t any more reason to love Ariana Grande, she’s now posted her own feminist manifesto on Twitter. Check it out here!

Though we’d like to think that sexism is a thing of the past, misogynistic mindsets still exist. We’re delighted that Ariana Grande has done her bit for the sisterhood by posting her own feminist manifesto on Twitter.

In the text post, which she also shared on Instagram and Facebook, the singer stands up for women and cracks down on double standards, saying: “I am tired of living in a world where women are mostly referred to as a man’s past, present or future PROPERTY / POSSESSION,” adding, “I have SO. MUCH. MORE. to talk about [than men]. I’m currently making the best music I’ve ever made in my life.”

The post comes following the star’s split with rapper Big Sean – an issue she isn’t shy to discuss with her fans. She says: “I’m saying this after literally 8 years of feeling like I constantly had to have a boy by my side. After being on my own now for a few months I am realizing that that’s just not the case.”

It seems more or less embedded in Ariana’s genes to have strong, feminist viewpoints; she also mentions the “long line of feminist activists” in her family, mentioning her aunt Judy, the first female Italian American of the National Press Club.

Quoting Gloria Steinem‘s famous feminist article After Black Power, Women’s Liberation, Grande states: “Any women who chooses to behaves like a full human being should be warned that the armies of the status quo will treat her as something of a dirty joke… she will need her sisterhood.”

Grande has a huge audience of fans who will listen to her, so it’s great to see her putting the spotlight on the double standards all women have to face. We applaud her for it!
