American singer and actress Janelle Monae and Belvedere Vodka kicked off the “A Beautiful Future” Campaign with a Fem the Future Brunch yesterday at Catch LA in West Hollywood, California.

Monae hosted a brunch for her organisation Fem the Future, which was launched in 2016 and empowers female music executives, filmmakers and engineers. Fem the Future, as she fondly called it, is “a grassroots movement” and “a tribe full of women and men who want to see women soar, who want to see a light being shined on women storytellers, music producers, engineers, and so on and so forth.”

The event was attended by a number of stars including Lupita Nyong’o, Jidenna, Geena Davis, Grimes, Rosario Dawson, Ava DuVernay, Tessa Thompson, Danai Gurira, Serayah McNeill, Dee Rees, Yvonne Orji, Matt McGorry.
