Jessica Valenti: Beyoncé Is ‘Absolutely’ a Feminist

Beyoncé’s surprise album release last week reignited an ever-contentious debate: Does the pop singer present a feminist message? “Absolutely,” Nation blogger Jessica Valenti answered on the Melissa Harris-Perry Show on Saturday. Valenti joined CBS’s Nancy Giles, Columbia University professor Farrah Griffin and Newsweek’s David Cay Johnston to talk about how Beyoncé’s self-authorship serves the cause. “I’ve been calling this the album that is going to launch a thousand women’s studies papers,” Valenti said.
