What did Jada Pinkett Smith say is a woman’s superpower?
Jada Pinkett Smith is a big advocate for women in Hollywood — but her most ardent fans might not know that she is just as passionate about women’s rights in general.
In a recent episode of Red Table Talk, Pinkett Smith opened up about what she believes a woman’s superpower is:
“I’ve always believed a woman’s superpower is how deep she can love, you know? And one of the things growing up in Baltimore, I grew up around a lot of Black women that didn’t have, necessarily, resources to give, right? But they had their strength and they had their love to offer.”
For Pinkett Smith, it all comes down to love in the end. The actress has shown that nothing matters quite so much to her as her family and that she will go out of her way to not only spend time with them, but to work side by side with them as well.
