    Sexism has always been a major part of the entertainment industry, actually... For any industry. People can encounter sexism on a daily basis and superstars are not immune to it, but luckily, many people have stepped out and shared their opinions in hopes of changing misogynistic patterns for the better. Here, we look at 10 times artists gave brilliant responses to sexist remarks.

    1. Ariana Grande

    Grande challenges sexist assumptions in a radio interview. After being asked to choose between her cell phone or makeup, the singer tells them, "You need a little brushing up on equality." When asked what problem she'd fix in the world, she cites double standards and sexism... AKA this interview.


    2. Zendaya


    Zendaya responds to an extremely rude comment about her makeup-less face by posting a selfie without makeup, writing "terrifying honestly…" Simple, but effective.



    3. Lauren Mayberry of CHVRCHES


    Lauren Mayberry has shut down misogynist comments before--and here she talks about how it's impacted her, and the need for change. She says, "There has to be a shift in the cultural approach to women, and that will take time."


    4. Taylor Swift


    So, men get off the hook for writing about their exes but women don't? Some serious double standards here. Tell them, Tay.


    5. Nicki Minaj


    Sexism is rampant in any workforce, and Nicki speaks out here. She poses an important question, "When does this stop?" We all ask, when will it really stop?




    6. Kate Nash


    Sexism in music is widespread, and can occur anywhere. Kate was not pleased with this musical category at the record store. She fired back with some thought-provoking comments.






    7. Björk

    Eat your Bechdel test heart out. Those are Björk's words in her open letter about sexism.



    8. Rihanna


    When asked what she's looking for in a man, Rihanna responded, "I'm not looking for a man. Let's start there." It's a perfect response to a tiresome question.


    9. Miley Cyrus


    Miley goes on a passionate rant about Trump's sexism. She says, "We will not allow you to destroy everything we have overcome as women!" Boom.


    10. Madonna


    Madonna inspires here, accepting Woman of the Year at the Billboard Women in Music 2016 Awards. It's a bit long, but totally worth watching. It's a powerful speech about feminism and misogyny.
