In a new interview with Marie Claire, Janelle Monáe suggests a way for women to join together and take a stand against misogyny:

“People have to start respecting the vagina. Until every man is fighting for our rights, we should consider stopping having sex. I love men. But evil men? I will not tolerate that. You don’t deserve to be in my presence. If you’re going to own this world and this is how you’re going to rule this world, I am not going to contribute anymore until you change it.”

Monáe was named one of Marie Claire’s “Fresh Faces 2017,” alongside Emily Ratajkowski, Alexandra Daddario, Aja Naomi King and Zoey Deutch. Each woman is featured on one of the magazine’s five May covers.

A singer and songwriter with six Grammy Award nominations, Monáe earned acclaim as an actress in 2016. She made her big screen debut in the Best-Oscar-winning Moonlight and played a starring role in Hidden Figures. She is also a longtime activist, especially around the issues of gun control and police brutality. In January, she told The Guardian, “Music is my weapon. I won’t remain silent.”

In this Marie Claire video, all five of the magazine’s Fresh Faces respond to the phrase “The Future Is Female.”

And here’s a behind-the-scenes video from the Fresh Faces photo shoot that includes Monáe posing with an instant camera, and Emily Ratajkowski dancing with a fluffy little dog:
