It’s the 21st century and let’s face it: we don’t always get what we deserve as women. Tons of centuries have passed yet women’s voices are still not always heard. Society still manages to judge women for who they are and what they do. Why? Because they’re women. Because we’re women. And to tell the truth? If we were men, whatever we’d do wouldn’t be a problem to them, because that would be a different story.
We’re all humans with our own behaviors, stories, and likes and dislikes. We’re our own individual. We don’t need those wall-like standards society puts around us. It’s time to break those barriers and listen to these songs that will make you feel like you want to continually fight for women empowerment and be proud of being one.
1. Pretty Girl by Maggie Lindemann.
“Pretty Girl” is a song that basically tells everyone how as women, we’re not objects. We have our own wants and hates, our own attitudes whether bad or good, and our own lives. We aren’t meant to be a decoration. We’re meant to stand out there together with the male population. We’re not just pretty girls.
2. Power by Little Mix.
Little Mix’s “Power” shows how us women can basically rock at anything and have the power to do anything we set our minds to. It also points out how in a relationship, the guy doesn’t always have to take the lead. The girl can to. It’s a fast pop song that will have you breaking down and just dancing away, because girl, you got the power!
3. Sit Still, Look Pretty by Daya
If Little Mix’s “Power” says how women can be empowered even with a man, Daya goes on singing that girls don’t need men in their lives and that they can do just about anything a man can. It sort of has the same concept as Maggie Lindemann’s “Pretty Girl,” showing that women aren’t decorations and we definitely won’t sit still and look pretty.
4. The Man by Taylor Swift
Part of Taylor Swift’s “Lover” album, we saved this song for the last. To judge, this honestly is more than just a women empowering song as it mostly points out how until now society judges women for what they do which if men did, they’d be praised instead. It’s a sad truth that was very much emphasized in the song. This makes it more badass, honestly.
