During her headlining set at this year’s JAY Z-founded Made in America Festival, Beyoncé proves once again that she’s a strong proponent of equality and feminism. Interlaced between her comprehensive setlist of chart-topping singles, the Houston singer/songwriter, who recently celebrated her 34th birthday, continued to encourage the empowerment of women by playing a clip which quotes Ronda Rousey, the UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion.
