Feminist Beyoncé Pens Essay On Gender Equality Not Existing: "It Isn't A Reality Yet"

Beyoncé ditches the recording studio as she gets all serious in writing an essay regarding gender equality.

The 32 year-old can be viewed as a feminist performer through her hit tracks of 'Single Ladies' and 'Run This World (Girls)' which basically convey the empowerment of women.

However, Beyoncé may sing about it, but she believes gender equality is non-existent when it comes to the pay check.

The essay, published in The Shriver Report, is titled 'Gender equality is a myth!' and is part of a 2014 special report called 'A Woman's Nation Pushes Back From the Brink.'

Bey expresses her view on the difference between a male and female's income, citing cooperation between genders is the only solution to reach equality.

The Grammy-Award winner opens the article strongly by stating, "We need to stop buying into the myth about gender equality. It isn't a reality yet."

"Today, women make up half of the U.S. workforce, but the average working woman earns only 77 percent of what the average working man makes," she continues. "But unless women and men both say this is unacceptable, things will not change."

The 'Halo' singer obviously has very strong views on the topic as she writes, "Humanity requires both men and women, and we are equally important and need one another. So why are we viewed as less than equal?"

The wife of Jay-Z concludes by suggesting today's society has "a lot of work to do, but we can get there if we work together."

"Women are more than 50 percent of the population and more than 50 percent of voters. We must demand that we all receive 100 percent of the opportunities," she adds.

Other high-profile names, who contributed to the special report, was actress Eva Longoria and NBA all-star LeBron James who wrote a piece called 'America's Working Single Mothers.'
