Good morning Disruptors! Today I want to share with you my favorite feminist song and ask you what yours is!!
Perhaps unsurprisingly, mine is by Ani DiFranco (what? No, I don’t have 10 of her albums, I don’t know what you’re talking about). It’s called Face Up and Sing and challenges women to join her in calling out harassment, patriarchy and life’s general ennui.
Here are a few lines from my favorite song. Respond in the comments– what’s yours??
some guy tried to rub up against me
in a crowded subway car
some guy tried to feed me some stupid line
in some stupid bar
I see the same shit everyday
the landscape looks so bleak
I think I’ll take the first one of you’s home
that does something unique
some chick says
thank you for saying all the things I never do
the thanks I get is to take all the shit for you
it’s nice that you listen
it’d be nicer if you joined in
as long as you play their game girl
you’re never going to win
