Solange Knowles has never been afraid to shy away from tough issues. In fact, she has spent much of her life and career being a champion for women of color, especially black women. In a recent interview with Bust magazine, Solange laid out what it means to be a feminist — and we couldn’t agree more.

In the interview, Solange explained how she sees herself fitting into the feminist movement, and what the movement means to her. Growing up in a household of exclusively women — her mom, Tina, and sister Beyoncé, plus Kelly Rowland and another girl cousin — made her realize that women’s power comes from other women.

“I’m a feminist who wants not only to hear the term intersectionality, but actually feel it, and see the evolution of what intersectional feminism can actually achieve,” the singer said.
