After 20 plus years, she has gone from character actress to leading lady. The actress is who got engaged earlier in the year is definitely to flex her power and call the shots.

InStyle says:

Taraji P. Henson might be the greatest motivational speaker women have at the moment.

“I feel like a boss b*. I’m grabbing my nuts, like ‘Yeah!’” She’s a commanding presence in a man’s world. And as she knows, there’s no time to mince words anymore. From the #MeToo movement to the midterm elections, we’ve seen what happens when women stake their claim. @TarajiPHenson has worked for over 20 years and is among those finally getting their due — and she’s not afraid to say it. She pays homage to Mary Tyler Moore, another amazing heroine, on our January subscriber cover.

The “Empire” star also shared her thoughts on a multitude of subjects from her life as a single mom, to diversity in Hollywood and of course her much anticipated wedding.
