In an interview with People, revealing that she was sexually harassed by former co-star

He called me into a room and pulled down his pants. Then in front of his friends, he asked her to perform a lewd act. It was awful and disgusting. And all the behavior afterwards — this was all before #MeToo — where they kind of tried to destroy me and my career. If it had happened after #MeToo, then I could have just blasted them. Because I’m a lawyer, I documented it. I called my rep. I got certain things in writing about what happened. […] If it happened again, I would probably stand up for myself even more just because of the bravery of the other women that have stood up and now allowed me an opportunity. […] I want to have strong girl-power and female empowerment themes in the movies that I make.

I want to build a community where women of all races can communicate and share some of those secrets, so we can continue to support and take care of each other. I want to give women a space to feel their own strength and tell their stories. That is power.

I know I have been naïve and haven’t been empathetic toward women in the past and have overlooked their struggles. I am learning everyday beside my wife as I see all of the struggles she faces that I will never have to face. I am committed to being better and more aware of the struggles women face that men never will!! Women you are superhero’s and deserve to be celebrated today and everyday.

In an op-ed she has written for the New York Times

[...] Black women are still constantly disrespected and disregarded in so many areas of life. [...] And it’s ridiculous that some people think the simple phrase “Protect Black women” is controversial. We deserve to be protected as human beings. And we are entitled to our anger about a laundry list of mistreatment and neglect that we suffer.

We need to protect our Black women and love our Black women, ‘cause at the end of the day, we need our Black women. We need to protect our Black men and stand up for our Black men, ‘cause at the end of the day, we’re tired of seeing hashtags about Black men.

In an opinion piece for Time Magazine

Little girls’ softness, their openness and instinct to nurture and help others, must be appreciated and not abused. We must do much more to protect them, in all societies: not only against the extreme ways girls’ rights are often violated, but also the more subtle injustices and attitudes that so often go unnoticed or excused.

In an interview with Elle

Nobody’s more powerful than nature. Nothing. And nature’s female. When she’s angry, don’t f**k with her. That’s the way that I feel women are like right now. The earth is angry. We’ve been treating it badly. We’ve been doing the same thing to the earth that we do to women. We just take and take and expect it to keep producing. And it’s exhausted. It can’t produce. We’re getting handed a piece-of-s**t planet, and I refuse to hand that down to my child. Until I feel like my kid would live on an earth with fish in the water, I’m not bringing in another person to deal with that.

After careful reflection I have decided to no longer move forward with my scheduled concert at Jeddah World Fest. While I want nothing more than to bring my show to fans in Saudi Arabia, after better educating myself on the issues, I believe it is important for me to make clear my support for the rights of women, the LGBTQ community and freedom of expression

At the Women in the World summit in New York

Money is actually something I’m very excited to talk about. It’s this thing that people think is super-icky—and that’s the trap. The trap is they make you feel icky about it, so that you don’t ask for what you deserve—because you know what that number is inside. […] When women talk to me about this, I say, ‘You know, don’t even do it for you, if that makes you feel weird right now. Do it for the women that are gonna come after you, Do it for the next one. Do it for the future you, because you are helping. And if that can give you a little bit more of a stir and a fight, then do it. We need you.

In an interview with The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, talking about the #MeToo movement

I think it’s phenomenal and overdue and wonderful. The only thing I ever have a personal thing about is tone. I don’t want anything to have a tone of anger.… I’ve never been an angry person and I never expected people to hand me anything and I never expected them to believe in me. I had to create enough homework and data to show and prove to them. So, I want—I hope—for people that they won’t do it with anger and expectation, because what you really have to do is prove that you are capable, and what this important time is about is those doors opening. It was in the era of that Hollywood power-suit woman—women were becoming heads of studios, but they were almost trying to be men about it, and we were like, ‘We’re just girls, but here’s how we would make Charlie’s Angels.’ And we would show and make clip reels and prove ourselves, and we would leave no doubt or favors to be asked. And I think it’s important for women to work hard at their dreams and to do it without anger, and I know this is a taboo thing to say in this time because it’s ignited by anger.… But I can assure you that if you have the abilities and you stay positive and you don’t expect things to be handed to you, but you really work towards them, all the greatness will come. Because I was never treated like a little girl who couldn’t do it.… I say, take the positive and capable approach and be tireless about it. Never, ever stop working.

In an interview with Variety

Hollywood is the least of it. The Time’s Up movement is very different than the #MeToo movement. The Time’s Up movement is about taking action to create change. One of the wonderful things that I love about the Time’s Up movement is that they understand the importance of intersectionality, of reaching out to other sectors where women aren’t famous and aren’t white and are terribly vulnerable. They face terrible sexual harassment. Domestic workers, farmer workers, restaurant works, and so forth. Time’s Up is putting its arms around all those sectors. That’s why I think it’s a very profound movement that will be around for long, long time. I do think it’s a tipping point. We’re not going back.

In a tweet, in the wake of Harvey Weinstein's sexual misconduct scandal

I am saddened and angry that a man who I worked with used his position of power to intimidate, sexually harass and manipulate many women over decades. The additional allegations of assault that I read this morning made me sick. This is completely unacceptable, and I find myself asking what I can do to make sure this doesn’t happen to others. We need to do better at protecting our sisters, friends, co-workers, and daughters. We must support those who come forward, condemn this type of behavior when we see it, and help ensure there are more women in positions of power.

But like Hillary, you can still be an inspiration and get important things done. Do not let this defeat you—let this enrage you! Let it motivate you! Let this be the fire you didn't have before. If you are an immigrant, if you are a person of color, if you are LGBTQ+, if you are a woman—don't be afraid, be loud!

I respect women and and I will do so much better for women but Hillary takes all of this money into a crooked foundation, crooked Hillary, crooked foundation from Saudi Arabia and from many other countries where they enslave women. That’s what they do they call it enslavement so they enslave women as far as – as far as gays are concerned.

On a Tumblr post

I don’t want to have to compromise my morals in order to make a living. I don’t want to be molested at shows or on the street by people who perceive me as an object that exists for their personal satisfaction. I’m tired of men who aren’t professional or even accomplished musicians continually offering to ‘help me out’ (without being asked), as if I did this by accident and I’m gonna flounder without them. Or as if the fact that I’m a woman makes me incapable of using technology. I have never seen this kind of thing happen to any of my male peers. I’m tired of being considered vapid for liking pop music or caring about fashion as if these things inherently lack substance or as if the things I enjoy somehow make me a lesser person. I’m sad that my desire to be treated as an equal and as a human being is interpreted as hatred of men, rather than a request to be included and respected. I promise I do not hate men at all, nor do I believe that all men are sexist or that all men behave in the ways described above.
