Madonna has never been afraid of wading into tricky subjects, and in her latest interview with Out magazine, the singer compared gay rights, civil rights and women's rights and declared the last one to be the worst.
"Women are still the most marginalized group," she said. "They’re still the group that people won’t let change."
Madonna said that to be a successful woman, "You must fit into this box: You must behave this way, dress this way."
The "What It Feels Like For A Girl" singer went on to say that she felt gay rights and civil rights had come much further than women's rights, and that people are more closed-minded towards women.
Madonna recently described Kanye West as "black Madonna". So, there's that.
