As well as starring in the hit musical drama Empire, Taraji P. Henson is gearing up for the release of her latest film, What Men Want – a spin on the Mel Gibson-led What Women Want (2000). She’s also landed the cover of InStyle Magazine’s January 2019 issue, and she taped a short clip for the publication letting the world know “what women really want”, including while at work.
Speaking on the issue of employment and salaries, she said: “I want my fucking money!”
“We want to be treated and paid fairly in the workplace. If I do the work just as good as a man, I want my cheque. If you’re not being treated fairly in the workplace, know your power and take it elsewhere. They need you, you don’t need them, always remember that.”
