Fabulous Feminist Fridays: What is Your Favorite Feminist Anthem?

2 Mar

In honor of Fabulous Feminist Fridays, we present select responses to: What is your favorite feminist anthem? 

“Can’t Hold Us Down by Christina Aguilera feat. Lil Kim”- Sara Ainsworth

“One Girl Revolution by Superchic(k)”:
“And i’ll be everything that I wanna be,
I am confidence and insecurity.
I am a voice yet waiting to be heard,
I shoot the shot (bang) that you hear round the world”
I love this song because it speaks to the strength in all of us, our ability to defy critics or any who would bring us down and be our own revolution. While i generally believe less in individualism and more in a global community than this song seems to, it definitely captures the need to be strong and express your awesomeness. Also, it was in Cadet Kelly which is obviously the best Disney Channel Original Movie ever (that didn’t feature Ryan Merriman).”- Jenna Sackler
“Man! I Feel Like A Woman by Shania Twain. Feminist anthem and go-to karaoke song.”-Erin Riordan
“Babygirl by Brother Ali. So empowering and beautiful.” – Kat Kelley

    Once in high school I was at a summer program and Katy Perry’s “California Girl” came on. Some girl near me commented, “I think this is, like, the feminist anthem of our generation.”

    …you go right ahead and think that, honey.
