Zendaya On Women: Now Is The Best Time To Speak Up

It’s no secret that Zendaya is a huge advocate for women’s rights, and in a recent interview, she opened up more!

The 21-year-old actress opened up to Elle.com about how women are so powerful and now is the best time to speak up.

“Women are so powerful,” she said. “We’re such amazing people and creations, and I think that we’re so much more powerful together as well when we look out for each other, when we uplift each other, when we protect each other. And that means all types of women.”

“I think that it’s important that we right now especially not be afraid or feared into silence because we need each other, and we need each other’s voice now more than ever,” Zendaya continued. “Now is the best time I think to speak up, especially for our fellow women who may not have a voice or whose voice may be a little more silenced. It’s time to also use our platforms for each other.”

She also said that men share a role in the support of women and in being advocates.

“Men are a huge part of that movement [to support women],” she said. “It’s important for men to step up to the plate and do a little bit of work too. I think all the help we can get is important. Women are very, very strong and powerful, but it’s also up to men to be accountable and also to push forward the things that we need as well.”
