International Women's Day: 15 Girl Power Tracks
We're celebrating International Women's Day by blasting these 15 tunes about being a girl!
Saturday, March 8th, marks a very important day in the world: International Women's Day! Supporting the advancement of women in today's society, it's a fight for the equalization of the sexes that sadly does not exist yet, even in today's forward-thinking world. Women are still treated as objects and make less money than men in the workplace, but with International Women's Day, people can reflect on what it means to be a girl. One great way to help change the world is through music: there are hundreds of anthems out there about feminism, and we've chosen our favorite 15 to include in our girl power Spotify playlist. It doesn't matter if you're male or female (or whatever you identify as) -- the empowerment of women can and will change the world for the better, so plug in to our International Women's Day playlist!
