In a video uploaded to the company's Instagram on Tuesday, Jenner says, "I think a strong woman is independent, don't need no man, can, like, walk into a room by herself and not be bothered and can go anywhere by herself and not need a million people around her. I think that's a really strong woman."

"Strong is sexy" is the theme of Jenner's new Calvin Klein campaign, according to the company's announcement on Instagram.

When Jenner was asked to describe a strong man, she said, "A strong man, to me, is like someone who's very nice to a woman and, like, treats her right. Women are like, the creators of life. We hold life. But you need to respect us."

Preach, Kendall.
