When a guy has made you feel like the “little woman”, when you’ve been passed over for promotion in favor of a less talented, less capable man, when society is bombarding you with yet more images that say you have to be thin and gorgeous or your contribution to the world is diminished – you want to scream. Loudly. Time to lift your spirits with these tunes that scream. They scream I am a strong, beautiful woman. I am proud.
1. Sisters Are Doin’ It for Themselves by Eurythmics & Annie Lennox
Can you get any more badass than Aretha Franklin and Annie Lennox belting out a tune together? This 80’s classic has become an anthem of feminist independence and teaches us that we don’t need a man to help us prove our self-worth; we can bust out of the kitchen and shout it from the rooftops ourselves!
