I love the “F” word. I think it is beautiful, empowering, and something to be embraced. The “F” word I am talking about is feminist, of course. My name is Hilary and I am coming out as a feminist.
I believe that we should all be treated equally regardless of gender. Feminism is defined as, “the belief that men and women should have equal rights and opportunities,” according to Merriam-Webster. Not too shabby, right?
Being a feminist doesn’t mean you hate men. It simply means that we should all be considered as equal.
With that said I would like to share a song list. This list includes music that makes me feel empowered and strong. The type of music that makes me feel like I could do anything.
So here goes.
Mindy Gledhill “Whole Wide World”
Lily Allen “Hard Out Here” (WARNING: this one has some cursing and is satire so.. be warned)
Destiny’s Child “Independent Women”
Veruca Salt “Volcano Girls”
Tupac “Keep Ya Head Up” (Not super sure if Tupac is a feminist or a good role model but I enjoy this specific song)
Lady Gaga “Born This Way”
Marina & The Diamonds “Oh No”
Sara Bareilles “Brave”
Miasha “Everybody’s Beautiful”
Now go forth and dance your heart out! Whether you consider yourself a feminist or not. Just dance!
