25 Songs That Have Empowered Women

Sharing is caring!

Over the last few decades women have really stood up against the patriarchal society we live and said 'enough is enough.'  Although we still live in a patriarchal society, the boundaries are being blurred thanks to some of the most influential music of our time.

I thought I would compile a list of 25 songs that depict the changing attitudes  of women over the last 50 years, particularly over the last 20 years.
