Backstage at Billboard Women in Music, we asked the stars of the night how they felt about the #metoo movement. Here is what they said.
Kelly Rowland has spread female positivity throughout her 20-year career, and she continues to this day, speaking to Billboard about the importance of the #MeToo movement. “First off, I’m very, very proud of the #MeToo movement that’s happening right now,” she said. “I think that what I’m most proud of is the bravery that has taken place.”
She sees the expansive network of communication as a steppingstone toward healing for survivors. “The fact that there’s this huge line of communication that’s open, I think that it is necessary,” she continued. “And you see what happens when you communicate. And I just encourage women to continue to communicate, continue to talk about any and everything.”
Then she spoke about how solidarity is key to the movement. “We experience different things as women every day,” she said. “We have to bind together in solidarity and show each other support.”
