In honor of International Women’s Day, Madonna released Her-Story, a short, stylish film dedicated to women who fight for freedom.

The black-and-white film is divided into eight chapters. We’ve broken them down for your convenience:

Chapter 1

Madonna poses in German Expressionist punk rock gear.

Chapter 2

A pair of sailors fight in an alley like in that one scene from They Live.

Chapter 3

A very fashionable k.d. lang impersonator sings for a bit.

Chapter 4

Madonna in a kicky hat and some models sensually dance with each other and some boxing equipment.

Chapter 5

A model plays the accordion.

Chapter 6

Madonna runs some sort of fetish lesbian mafia, which we are completely on board for.

Chapter 7

Madonna appears as a beret angel with a noose around her neck and dances atop a prison, probably representing political martyrs.

Chapter 8

Silhouetted models dance in an alley as Madonna announces, “We must love one another or die.”

Finally, some models unveil a banner that reads, “We should all be feminists.” A title card reads, “Women’s rights are human rights!”

Madonna has always been an outspoken feminist and LGBTQ rights ally in her own bombastic way. She brought voguing into mainstream American households. She discussed racism in the video for “Like a Prayer” and has always fought against patriarchal sexual double-standards. We look forward to seeing what else she has to say in the Trump era.
