Beyonce pens essay on feminism

Says gender equality is a myth

By Josh Gross

Pop singer and Destiny's only child left standing, Beyonce Knowles, has always had a touch of the girl power in her music. But she made her feelings on feminism and gender equality a bit more explicit with a recently published essay that starts out with a message directed at all the single fellas.

From the essay....

"We need to stop buying into the myth about gender equality. It isn’t a reality yet. Today, women make up half of the U.S. workforce, but the average working woman earns only 77 percent of what the average working man makes. But unless women and men both say this is unacceptable, things will not change. Men have to demand that their wives, daughters, mothers, and sisters earn more—commensurate with their qualifications and not their gender. Equality will be achieved when men and women are granted equal pay and equal respect." 

Beyonce's essay was published as part of The Shriver Report, a collection of pieces compiled by journalism Maria Shriver seeking to examine the way women live and work.
