Have you ever been in one of those moods where you feel like you are a powerful female warrior and you can take on the world all on your own with no boundaries? We’ve compiled an awesome feminist playlist that will make you feel like a badass. This feminist playlist features songs from many different female artists that are known for being badasses themselves.
1. “Woman” by Ke$ha (feat. The Dap-Kings Horns)
This female empowerment anthem is a great way to kick off this feminist playlist. The horns included in this upbeat song make you want to get up off the couch and dance. It’s also a great tune to work out to, as it definitely gets you in the mood to kick some ass.
2. “Sit Still, Look Pretty” by Daya
This song is a straight-forward feminist song, as the lyrics flat out say that “this queen don’t need a king.” Hats off to all the ladies out there doing it for themselves! Women in relationships are also badasses.
3. “Most Girls” by Hailee Steinfeld
The song “Most Girls” by Miss Steinfeld states the empowering fact that you can’t put women in a box and label them with stereotypes. All women are different and individual people and this song celebrates that fact. Whether you like wearing sweatpants or tiny dresses, you are one awesome human and no one should judge you for being exactly who you are.
4.” Love Myself” by Hailee Steinfeld
The lyrics in this song say “gonna love myself, no I don’t need anybody else.” Damn straight. We don’t need anyone to validate us or to make us feel like we are worthy or good enough. We must find that within ourselves and love ourselves. Embrace the strong and powerful woman that you are!
5.”Broken Glass” by Rachel Platten
This song encourages women to go after their dreams and not to let anyone or anything stand in their path. It encourages women and girls to break that glass ceiling and not wait for permission to do so. Don’t wait for someone else to lead the way; do it yourself! The song says that Rachel is going to “dance on broken glass” which all women should aspire to do!
6.”Single Ladies” by Beyonce
For all the single ladies out there, this one is pretty much a classic. It tells men that if they like it, well, then they better put a ring on it. This song inspires women to be fearlessly themselves and that if a man wants you, he should stop messing around and commit! If men want to see the value in a woman, then they will commit and marry that woman, but if they don’t, then they need to stop wasting our time!
7.”Single” by Natasha Bedingfield
This song is another one for single women out there. The lyrics say “I don’t need another half to make me whole.” Amen! It’s all about being single and independent and enjoying it. Women who are single are often judged or pitied because they don’t have a man by their side. This song disputes that theory and says that a woman doesn’t need a man on her arm to be fulfilled in life.
8.”Run the World (Girls)” by Beyonce
Are you surprised that another Beyonce song made this list? You shouldn’t be. Who run the world? Girls! This song is great for teaching girls and women of all ages that they should feel as if they could run the world. They shouldn’t sit back and let the patriarchy do its thing; they should be loud and take up space!
9.”Confident” by Demi Lovato
This song has a killer beat and is totally catchy. It makes you wanna get up off the couch, hit the gym and be the badass that you are. It also makes you want to put on something sexy and embrace your beautiful body. Shake what your mama gave you. Own that confidence, girl!
10.”Independent Women, Pt. 1″ by Destiny’s Child
The title says it all. The song talks about how a woman pays her own bills and buys her own shoes and jewelry. She depends on herself and not a man. It’s an anthem for all the working women out there doing it for themselves. “It’s not easy being independent,” like the song says, so props to all the women who are working their butts off every day.
