Fresh from her Glastonbury set, Miley Cyrus has shared the long-awaited music video for 'Mother's Daughter', a standout track from her new EP, She Is Coming.

Living up to her promise, the video for the "bad ass feminist anthem" features appearances from a star-studded cast, including her mother Tish Cyrus, skateboard Lacey Baker, dancer Amazon Ashley, transgender models Casil McArthur and Aaron Philip, and actresses Angelina Duplisea and Mela Murder.
Celebrating womanhood in all its forms, feminist messages flash throughout the video, including 'not an object' and 'virginity is a social construct'.
She Is Coming, released at the end of May, saw Miley teaming up with a number of big name collaborators, including the likes of RuPaul, Ghostface Killah and Mike WiLL Made-It. The EP is set to be followed by two more projects, each of which will contain six songs.
Miley has also kept herself busy with a lead role as Ashley O in the latest season of Black Mirror. She also took to social media recently to speak out about the importance of consent, after a member of a crowd in Barcelona attempted to put his arm around her neck.
