Multiple Grammy nominated artiste, Janelle Monáe has said she’s in support of withholding Sex as a form of protest for women’s rights.

In an interview for the May issue for Marie Claire magazine, the singer-songwriter and actress discussed empowerment, breaking down gender norms and why a sex strike might be necessary. She said..

“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. We have to realize our power and our magic. Because I am all about black-girl magic, even though I’m standing with all women. But this year? This year, I am so carefree black girl.”

The Hidden Figures actress also discussed why it’s so important to push back on gender stereotypes.

“It is important for women to be [in control], especially when gender norms and conformity are pushed upon us,” Monáe said. “Women automatically are told that this is how you should look. This is how you should get a man. This is how you should get a woman. You need to fit into all these boxes to be accepted. I don’t subscribe to that way of thinking.”

Woman Rapes, Robs Male Taxi Driver At Knifepoint

Woman Rapes, Robs Male Taxi Driver At Knifepoint

An Ohio woman has been charged with rape after it was alleged that she sexually assaulted a taxi driver at knifepoint before she and another man robbed him.

Brittany Carter, was charged this month with first-degree rape and aggravated robbery for a January 28 incident in Findlay, Ohio, according to the News-Messenger.

The 23-year-old Carter is accused of performing a sex act on the 29-year-old driver while her accomplices Corey Jackson, 20, allegedly held a knife to his throat.

According to Police report, the pair then stole $32 (£26) from the victim before fleeing the scene in the city of Findlay, Ohio.

“We don’t know why she did it,” police Lt Robert Ring said.

“Maybe it was a distraction because they took money from him.”

The incident was brought to light after Ms Carter called the Trinity Express Cab Service in the early hours of 28 January, according to police.

She was arrested after the driver reported the incident.

Jackson remains on the run but Carter was taken into custody for two first-degree felony counts.

It is understood that Jackson is wanted for rape, robbery and an unrelated murder charge.

The third accomplice is not expected to have charges brought against him, prosecutor Phil Riegle told the Toledo Blade.

Carter had previously been indicted twice on drug charges
