Must-Read: Ariana Grande Wrote an Incredibly Powerful Feminist Letter

Meghan Blalock

Some of the world's most famous people are really killing it so far this week from a feminist vantage point—and it's only Monday! First, Zoe Saldana's new husband changed his last name to hers, and now, pop star Ariana Grande has sent the entire world a feminist message—quite literally.

Grande became outraged when a reporter asked her to "talk about the boys." She refused to do so, sparking some interest on the Internet regarding why she wouldn't talk about her romantic life. So Grande shot back—by penning a lengthy open letter on Twitter explaining the feminist reasoning behind her silence.

"I am tired of living in a world where women are mostly referred to as a man's past, present or future property or possession," Grande poignantly observes. "I do not belong to anyone but myself, and neither do you. I know y'all already know this, but the double standards and misogyny are still ever-present. I can't wait to live in a world where people are not valued by whom they're dating or attached to, but by their value as an individual."

Go, Ariana, go! We couldn't agree more. Keep scrolling to shop some of our favorite power wardrobe items, and leave your thoughts on Ariana's note in the comments below!
