“I'm tough, I'm ambitious, and I know exactly what I want.
If that makes me a bitch, okay.”
International Women’s Day is here! Today, Wednesday March 8, the world will again recognize the importance of gender equality + supporting all women, all around the world- and this year’s theme is #BeBoldForChange!
We should always be conscience in celebrating every kind of woman, but this day is an opportunity to stand strong with men and women across the globe with one united mission: promote equality worldwide.
If you’re looking for ways to get involved in #IWD2017, I challenge you to research local events and organizations in your area that are taking part in such a vital movement. This year is an important year for women’s rights - so let’s not take the recognition lightly.
I’ve been fascinated with the idea of ‘girl power’, ever since the mid-90’s, when I was a little wide-eyed child, in love with the Spice Girls. There is still a Baby Spice hiding out in my soul, and when I listen to any song on my girl power anthem playlist, she comes out to play.
In honour of this special day, here's a list of my favourite songs that packed full of girl-power, all made by incredible females:
First Aid Kit - Hard Believer
Sky Ferreira - You're Not The One
The Beaches - Give It Up
Kacey Musgraves - Pageant Material
Madonna - Express Yourself
Hannah Georgas - Evelyn
Beyonce - I Was Here
LIGHTS - Banner
Shania Twain - Any Man Of Mine
Katy Perry - Lost
Bif Naked - I Love Myself Today
Jennifer Lopez - Love Dont Cost A Thing
Gwen Stefani - Cool
Dixie Chicks - Wide Open Spaces
St. Vincent - Digital Wittness
Spice Girls - Viva Forever
Tori Kelly - City Dove
Christina Aguilera - Still Dirrty
Joydrop - Sometimes Wanna Die
Mya - Case Of The Ex
Lady Gaga Ft. Florence Welch - Hey Girl
Marina & The Diamonds - Happy
Jewel - You Were Meant For Me
TLC - Unpretty
Best Coast - In My Eyes
Remember, fighting for women’s rights does not mean less rights for men. This day is about equality - we should love + celebrate each other by being strong together.
