11 Women's Empowerment Songs that Will Kickstart Your Day

It's World Music Day, and we're celebrating by putting together a women's empowerment playlist just for you. Music is powerful. Women are powerful. And when you combine the two, you get absolute magic. So, naturally, as a company dedicated to empowering women, we put together a list of our top favorite feminist songs right now.

These artists and their music empower women of all generations around the world, and we are all about it. Check out what we have listed below, and head to the Spotify playlist at the bottom so you can easily add, share, and empower others as you please! 

1. “Scars to Your Beautiful” - Alessia Cara
There's a hope that's waiting for you in the dark
You should know you're beautiful just the way you are
And you don't have to change a thing, the world could change its heart
No scars to your beautiful, we're stars and we're beautiful

2. “Run the World” - Beyonce
Boy you know you love it
How we're smart enough
To make these millions
Strong enough to bare the children

3. “Brave” - Sara Bareilles
Don’t run, stop holding your tongue
Maybe there’s a way out of the cage where you live
Maybe one of these days you can let the light in
Show me how big your brave is

4. “Respect” - Aretha Franklin
Find out what it means to me
Take care, TCB

5. “Fight Song” - Rachel Platten
This is my fight song
Take back my life song
Prove I'm alright song
My power's turned on
Starting right now I'll be strong
I'll play my fight song
And I don't really care if nobody else believes
'Cause I've still got a lot of fight left in me

6. “I Will Survive” - Gloria Gaynor
It took all the strength I had not to fall apart
Kept trying hard to mend the pieces of my broken heart
And I spent oh-so many nights just feeling sorry for myself
I used to cry
But now I hold my head up high and you see me
Somebody new
I'm not that chained-up little person and still in love with you

7. “Roar” - Katy Perry
I got the eye of the tiger, a fighter
Dancing through the fire
'Cause I am a champion, and you're gonna hear me roar
Louder, louder than a lion
'Cause I am a champion, and you're gonna hear me roar!

8. “Confident” - Demi Lovato
What's wrong with being, what's wrong with being
What's wrong with being confident?

9. “Sit Still, Look Pretty” - Daya
Oh, I don't know what you've been told
But this gal right here's gonna rule the world
Yeah, that is where I'm gonna be because I wanna be
No, I don't wanna sit still, look pretty

10. “Express Yourself” - Madonna
You deserve the best in life
So if the time isn't right then move on
Second best is never enough
You'll do much better baby on your own

11. “You Don’t Own Me” - Lesley Gore
You don't own me
Don't try to change me in any way
You don't own me
Don't tie me down 'cause I'd never stay
