Miley Cyrus ‘Mother’s Daughter‘ video is full on empowerment, feminist and highly sexualized

While Miley Cyrus has been overtly political for a few years now, recently she is really catching her stride in a major way.

Take her just-released ‘Mother’s Daughter‘ video. A full on empowerment video for every woman, gay, transgender or gender non-conforming person out there, absolutely feminist in every way, and featuring some of the most non-conformist people on social media at the moment.

People like models Aaron Philip, Vendela, Casil McArthur, skateboarder Lacey Baker, dancer Amazon Ashley, actresses Angelina Duplisea, Melanie Sierra and Paige Fralix, plus-sized model Angelina Duplisea and Miley’s mother, Tish Cyrus.

Cyrus’ ‘Mother’s Daughter‘ video is also completely out there when it comes to being highly sexualized, as it includes shots of Cyrus in a red full-body latex suit decorated with a vagina made from metal teeth, Cyrus masturbating, and the singer suggestively rubbing her scantily-clad body against that of model Vendela.

But all shot as high art, and all to point out that women, gays, transgenders, gender non-conforming people own their own bodies, and can do whatever they want with them.

And, just in case you might miss the empowering ‘Mother’s Daughter‘ video message, Cyrus has also included shots of statements like ‘Every Woman Is a Riot’, ‘You Are F*** Beautiful’, ‘Virginity is a Social Construct’, ‘Not An Object’, ‘Feminist AF’ and ‘My Body My Rules’.

Now do you get it?

Miley Cyrus’ ‘Mother’s Daughter‘ is from her just-released six-track She Is Coming. It is the first of three six-track EPs that will be released over the next whenever.
