Playing EXCLUSIVE: Christina Aguilera Is Teaching Her Kids to Be 'Respectful of Women'

Christina Aguilera is all about girl power.

The Voice coach is a big supporter of empowering women and the mother of two is hoping that her daughter, Summer Rain, who turns 2 in August, will embrace that as she grows older.

“[I’m] trying to be an example and speaking up about it,” the 35-year-old singer told ET’s Sophie Schillaci ahead of Monday's live episode. “Men have run the world for a while and this is the reason we don’t have another female coach because the odds are always kind of against us.”

“Next year though, finally, [we’ll have] two women together,” Aguilera said, referring to Miley Cyrus and Alicia Keys joining Adam Levine and Blake Shelton in The Voice’s signature red chairs for season 11. “Kick their asses, girls!”

Aguilera says she’s also raising her 8-year-old son, Max, with the intention that he’ll “respect women.”

“I tell him sometimes after a hard day’s work, I’m like, ‘Babe, always be respectful of women. Please! Mama’s going through it,’” she said. “But he’s just great, actually. He’s really great.”

Aguilera spoke of her mother’s hardships as being a catalyst for her strong views on feminism.

“I think it’s important ‘cause I grew up seeing my mom feel so disempowered by a lot of the abuse that she endured at my dad’s hands,” she explained. “I’m always trying to be a voice for women.”

As The Voice winds down its 10th season, Aguilera has high hopes for her final singer, former Curly Sue star Alisan Porter. Could this be the first year a female coach finally takes the crown?

“Of course there’s added pressure, but we’re laughing our way through it and just being like, you know what, we already won because we know each other now,” Aguilera says. “She can’t get rid of me!”

Aguilera also hinted that a possible collaboration with Porter could be in the works.

“I would totally be down for that,” she says. “I love her. I adore her. She’s just great and we had so much fun even collaborating for our duet [on Monday’s show] that for sure, it’s something we would like to do again.”

The Voice crowns its season 10 winner on Tuesday, May 24 on NBC.
