Queen Latifah is ensuring that women onscreen get the respect they deserve.
“We’ve always thought with the intention in mind to make sure we gave people opportunities who would not get them if we didn’t do it,” Queen Latifah said on Saturday during the ESSENCE Festival of Culture.
Latifah said she wanted to do something to change that disparity in hopes of changing overall how women and girls are portrayed onscreen.
