[THIS HAPPENED] Love & Hip-Hop: Atlanta Is Back, Beyoncé Embraces âFeministâ Label

Lil Wayne, Phaedra Parks and John Legend

cover story, Beyoncé embraces the feminist label. On being called a feminist, Bey says, “That word can be very extreme, but I guess I am a modern-day feminist. I do believe in equality.
