‘Just to use your voice. Don't let anybody silence you, ever,’ she said.

‘It's about spreading love, you know? Because that's the easy thing to do right now, is to say—women, you get angry or you get upset or you get hurt and you want to lash out, but what we're combatting is hate. So it's about spreading love and using your voice,’ Blake continued.

Blake, who has two daughters herself, stressed how essential it was to set an example for the younger generation.

'You just have to set an example, you know? It's so important,' she said.

'In times like this you can either curl up and be really depressed about the state of communities that are underserved, or you can set that example for your children. You just have to figure out how; that's the hardest thing. If somebody just had a playbook and they said, 'this is what do,' but it's about making that extra bit of effort.'

Well said indeed.

This isn't the first time Blake has been vocal about the election. In the run up to the big day, she shared a post on Instagram encouraging people to vote.
