Music & Gender: Your feminist wing-person playlist

Sometimes life can get messy, hectic. Sometimes you need a pick-me-up. A little kick in the pants, as I like to say. Think of this playlist as your feminist wing-person; it’s the little minute nudge, or maybe a forceful push, to free yourself from the grips of apathy. Meghan, Dua and Demi will remind you to be confident and love yourself while Best Coast and Florence promise a better tomorrow. The women of Bikini Kill, The Slits and The Runaways will serve as your fairy godmothers of punk, granting you grit and tenacity. Grimes can be your cheerleader while Nina Simone serenades you out of bed and across the Diag. Let these women be your strongholds, they won’t let you down.
