In honor of International Women’s Day, I though it would be fun to highlight some of the ladies and songs that embody the notion of women’s empowerment. I’m sorry to say that I am unfamiliar with singers and songs of this nature from around the world. If you know of some, please share them in the comments so that we can all learn.




The Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin – Respect


Gwen Stefani during her No Doubt days – Just A Girl


Barbara Streisand in the musical ‘Funny Girl’ – Don’t Rain on My Parade
