Queen Bey told her fans to read "What Will It Take To Make a Woman President?"
— -- Beyonce may be busy preparing for her upcoming world tour, but she also has time to read books. In fact, in a rare interview with Garage magazine, Queen Bey gave advice on the one book her fans should be reading.
"I would love for my younger fans to read 'What Will It Take to Make a Woman President?' by Marianne Schnall," she revealed.
So what's the book, which was released in 2013, about?
Here are the best quotes from Beyonce's favorite book, which centers on women empowerment and leadership.
"I think that it's very hard to change these entrenched notions and ideas that people have, particularly when men are controlling everything. I had an uncle who said to me, 'Why do you have to go to college? You're a girl. You're going to get married.' I actually heard those words."
"There are multiple levels of leadership. Your leadership in your own family, your community, how you lead your life, how you present yourself in the world as one who is willing to use what you have to give to others. That to me is the defining meaning of what it takes to be a leader."
"Not everybody needs to run for office. Some people need to be better advocates in their neighborhood. Some people need to be better advocates when it comes to fixing up schools and keeping the community thriving. Some people need to be better advocates in terms of the environment. So there are many ways to serve and many ways that we can fulfill our role as citizens of the United States of America."
"If the media shows women in a degrading, demeaning way, if violence is not taken seriously, if female candidates are covered in the context of how they look and what their hair is like and how they're dressed as opposed to how the male candidates are referred to, this has an impact on women and girls."
"Men need to do more childcare and housework. We need to get to equality in the home. We cannot have equality in the office until we have equality in the home. I think equal maternity and paternity leave are hugely important. How are we going to teach men to be equals if the average woman takes three months and the average man takes two weeks?"
