Scarlett Johansson Advocates For Celebration Of Female Sexuality

The Ghost in the Shell actress will not tolerate anyone's slut-shaming. 

In an interview for the June 2017 issue of Cosmopolitan, Scarlett Johansson decided to get real about some ridiculous social stigmas that persist today. "When women talk about enjoying sex, it's almost forbidden," she told the magazine. "Just having a healthy sexual attitude, you are labeled as loose, wild, a slut. You have no morals."

"You're seen as some kind of sexual deviant or someone who can't be in a monogamous relationship," she went on. "The minute you talk about enjoying yourself, being curious, that is still taboo."

In the same vein, Johansson, a supporter of Planned Parenthood, also spoke out about female reproductive rights, encouraging women everywhere to not be afraid to speak openly about their healthcare needs. "There's no reason we shouldn't be talking about our reproductive rights," the 32-year-old explained. "They're something we have to fight for and continue to protect. There's nothing icky about talking about that stuff. Of course, it's private and it's your body, but we should take the stigma away."

Johansson hasn't shied away from getting political in recent years—especially when it comes down to women's rights. In January 2017, the actress attended the Women's March on Washington and gave a powerful speech about women's healthcare. "President Trump, I did not vote for you," she told the crowd (via People). "That said, I respect that you are our president-elect and I want to be able to support you. But first I ask that you support me, support my sister, support my mother."
