Your Feminist Playlist: 10 Songs to Rock Out to this Summer

  • 2 of 2

1. You Don’t Own Me – Lesley Gore

You don’t own me, don’t try to change me in any way
You don’t own me, don’t tie me down ’cause I’d never stay

Movie Answer: Click here!

2. I Will Survive – Gloria Gaynor

Oh no, not I
I will survive
Oh as long as I know how to love
I know I’ll stay alive

3. I Am Woman – Helen Reddy

You can bend but never break me
‘Cause it only serves to make me
More determined to achieve my final goal
And I come back even stronger
Not a novice any longer
‘Cause you’ve deepened the conviction in my soul

Another movie pop quiz: What movie does this song remind you of?

Answer: Click here!

4. I’m Coming Out – Diana Ross

I’ve got to show the world
All that I wanna be
And all my abilities
There’s so much more to me

5. R-E-S-P-E-C-T – Aretha Franklin

What you want
Baby, I got
What you need
Do you know I got it?
All I’m askin’
Is for a little respect when you come home (just a little bit)
Hey baby (just a little bit) when you get home
(just a little bit) mister (just a little bit)

Wish more of the graphics showed women who differ from the super thin, skin baring 'ideal' of today --
Suzy Thompson/ Queen Latifah come to mind
