Besides being a rising actress, Zendaya she also connects with her fans for her perfect taste in fashion and her views on current feminism. Unfortunately, it seems that it is normal for many actresses to be criticized for their views on feminism, as has happened with Brie Larson, Scarlett Johansson, Emma Watson or Jessica Chastain, who are asked to stop being so “political” and to disengage to your career. The truth is that they have every right to speak openly about their positions and their fame can definitely drive and guide the conversation on this topic in society.
Zendaya She intends to continue talking about these points, since she ensures that she does not care what others think about her and just as she talks about feminism she also strives to find roles that represent her feelings. In fact, on more than one occasion he has approached directors to talk about his role and how to improve it, as happened with Sam Levinson at Malcolm & Marie – 60%. Some time ago, Vanity Fair magazine asked her to answer a questionnaire that included the question “What do you like best in a man?”, And the actress had no qualms about correcting the question to: “What do you like best in a person? ? ” This small, but significant act won the hearts of the LGBTQ community.
Now, Zendaya She draws attention again thanks to her definition of feminism, made during an interview with Vogue:
[El feminismo debe incluir] to women who look like you, women who don’t look like you, women whose experiences are different from yours. That means black women, that means trans women, that means all women.
In addition, the actress recognizes that the problem of black women in the United States is even more complex, since sexist and racist prejudices are mixed alike. Despite this, he considers that films and his own work in taking roles that are outside the norm are two aspects that can help future generations both in social change and in representation on the big screen.

This comment made by Zendaya it could divide some people. Feminism is a current that has several branches and some of them are quite extreme. For example, there are the so-called TERFs, women’s groups that call themselves feminists, but do not consider trans women in the fight for their rights. JK Rowling, creator of Harry Potter, is one of the best known figures of this position, as she constantly talks about the rights and opportunities for women, but she does not hesitate to criticize trans women because they are supposedly no more than men in disguise. The TERF consider that trans women appropriate the struggle and years of fighting male privilege, since at some point they were recognized as men.
On the other side is feminism that includes all women, whether they were born in a woman’s body or had to transition. Similarly, they take into account those who do not feel identified with a gender, those who are considered gender fluid and those who do not identify with any sexual preference.
Zendaya She plans to continue shaping her career from these lines that she herself follows and in the same interview she assures that she hopes to take the step to management soon to continue creating projects that can generate change. For now, in addition to continuing to study current affairs, the actress likes to watch directors work and sits down with them to talk about the entire process involved in creating a movie. It would not be strange to soon receive the news that Zendaya will write and direct her first film, after all she has already served as executive producer on several projects that she has starred in as the aforementioned Euphoria which delayed the premiere of its second season due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
