Scarlett Johansson Wants Women to Let Their 'Freak' Flags Fly

As one of the highest-grossing film actresses in Hollywood, Scarlett Johansson is a force to be reckoned with -- and she isn't afraid to use that power to make her voice heard as a mother, feminist, and fierce activist.


Johansson has loudly and proudly voiced her political concerns on everything from Planned Parenthood to Ivanka Trump, but the latest issue she's addressing should be universally accepted by all women.

In a recent interview with Cosmopolitan, Johansson called out one of the most "time-honored" traditions of the patriarchy: sex-shaming.

"When women talk about enjoying sex, it's almost forbidden. Just having a healthy sexual attitude, you are labeled as loose, wild, a slut. You have no morals, and you're seen as some kind of sexual deviant or someone who can't be in a monogamous relationship. The minute you talk about enjoying yourself, being curious, that is still taboo."

The worst part? Women sometimes still do it to other women.

So long as everything is consensual, women should always support other women doing what is best for them. Kudos to Johansson for calling this BS out.
