Taylor Swift tackles sexism in the cinematic video for new single ‘The Man.’
A tongue-in-cheek visual was directed by the Pop titan and – as folk will see – features her in the lead role too.

While the song hits a bit too on-the-nose lyrically, there’s no denying the potency of the video. Both its messaging and overall execution.
In this visual age, Ms. Swift gets “it” and is excitingly starting to sew powerful semantics into her output. All the while avoiding the preachy Pop pulpit and keeping things quirky and engaging.
