Wicked Women Wednesdays: My Feminist Playlist

Good afternoon ladies,

Bodysuit at Missguided


I am so spyched about this bodysuit from Missguided! The lyrics are classic, and got me thinking for Wicked Women Wednesday..

There are so many awesome songs out there and I am a massive music buff. But.. there are particular songs out there that on a tough day when the world is getting me down or maybe patriarchy has swung another fowl blow that I like to crank up and get lost in. I guess you could call them feminist songs! Woo!!


TLC - NO SCRUBS



A scrub is a guy that can't get no love from me

Hanging out the passenger side
Of his best friend's ride
Trying to holler at me



LILY ALLEN - HARD OUT HERE



Inequality promises that it's here to stay
Always trust the injustice 'cause it's not going away


LITTLE MIX - SALUTE



Ladies all across the world Listen up, we're looking for recruits
 If you're with me, let me see your hands
 Stand up and salute Get your killer heels, sneakers, pumps or 
lace up your boots Representing all the women, salute


CHRISTINA AGUILERA - CAN'T HOLD US DOWN



So what am I not supposed to have an opinion
Should I be quiet just because I'm a woman
Call me a bitch cos I speak what's on my mind
Guess it's easier for you to swallow if I sat and smiled


SALT N PEPPER - NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS



If I wanna take a guy home with me tonight
It's none of your business
And she wanna be a freak and sell it on the weekend
It's none of your business
Now you shouldn't even get into who I'm givin' skins to
It's none of your business
So don't try to change my mind, I'll tell you one more time
It's none of your business


PUSSYCAT DOLLS - I DON'T NEED A MAN



I don't need a man to make it happen
I get off being free
I don't need a man to make me feel good
I get off doing my thing


P!NK - STUPID GIRLS



What happened to the dreams of a girl president
She's dancing in the video next to 50 Cent


DESTINY'S CHILD - INDEPENDENT WOMEN PT 1


Question: Tell me how you feel about this
Try to control me boy you get dismissed
Pay my own fun, oh and I pay my own bills
Always 50/50 in relationships

KERI HILSON - PRETTY GIRL ROCK



All eyes on me when I walk in,
No question that this girl's a 10
Don't hate me 'cause I'm beautiful


BEYONCE - FLAWLESS



But why do we teach girls to aspire to marriage
And we don't teach boys the same?
We raise girls to see each other as competitors


QUEEN LATIFAH - UNITY



Instinct leads me to another flow
Everytime I hear a brother call a girl a bitch or a ho
Trying to make a sister feel low
You know all of that gots to go


NO DOUBT - I'M JUST A GIRL


I'm just a girl, living in captivity
Your rule of thumb makes me worry some 
I'm just a girl, what's my destiny?


LESLEY GORE - YOU DON'T OWN ME


I'm young and I love to be young,
I'm free and I love to be free,
To live my life the way I want,
To say and do whatever I please. 


So, I hope these songs can get you through the rest of this rather cold but sunny day.
