The Bombshell actress went on to say that raising the next generation of women means it's a responsibility to break down societal norms.
"We are raising a generation of young girls who realise that there is absolutely no shame in that game to be in relationship with yourself— to not fall into what society kind of predicts for us as what is socially acceptable: If you are not in a relationship, somehow you're a failure," she said. "Those are all constructs that we need to change. I remember two days ago just looking back in the rearview mirror and seeing my little 5-year-old's face; her mind was blown. But I know that that was the day that she realized there's a different possibility."
Theron adopted two Black daughters, August, 5, and Jackson, 8, which is why the actress recently told People she's been making a proactive decision to support the Black Lives Matter movement and continues to have tough conversations about race.
"When they see protesters on the side of the road, they'll say, 'Mum, honk. Honk, Mum, honk,' " she told the publication. "There's a real sense of pride."
“I love being a mum,” she previously told marie claire Australia. “By the time I had kids, I was really ready. I’m in bed at 7:45 every night now, and I love it because I’ve lived. If I die tomorrow, I’m at peace with who I am in my life."
