  1. "It Might Save Your Life": Master P On Solange's New Album And Staying Independent
    "The album is unique, and I feel like it's gonna make a difference in a lot of young girls' lives. Whether you're white, black, Asian, you know, it don't matter. I feel like this project is gonna be motivation to women all across the world and also men are gonna like it too.” | via Complex: http://uk.complex.com/music/2016/10/master-p-interview-solange-new-album-seat-at-the-table
  2. Ava DuVernay's '13th' Reframes American History
    "If you know all this stuff, great. Pass it on. If you don’t know it, know it. You need to know it. Because at this point, after you see 13th, silence in this case is consent. You know all of this. You’re a forward-thinking person, you care about it. You can’t just walk out into the night after you see the movie or put down your iPad after you see it on Netflix and do nothing about it.” | via The Atlantic: http://www.theatlantic.com/entertainment/archive/2016/10/ava-duvernay-13th-netflix/503075/
  3. Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie: Beyoncé's feminism isn't my feminism

I think men are lovely, but I don't think that women should relate everything they do to men: did he hurt me, do I forgive him, did he put a ring on my finger?” | via Volkskrant: http://www.volkskrant.nl/boeken/ngozi-adichie-beyonce-s-feminism-isn-t-my-feminism~a4390684/
