Inspired by the #yesallwomen campaign, for this week's mixtape, we bring you tunes of fierce female empowerment. These jams remind us that we are badass, we are strong, and we are, well . . . a zigga zig ahhh.
Aubrey Says: No Scrubs—TLC
Satisfy my appetite with something spectacular
Shake your vernacular
and then I get back to ya
Nikki Says: "Wannabe"—Spice Girls
Perhaps the most obvious choice, but also (in my opinion) the best. Who knew slamming your body down and winding it all around could be so empowering?
Giana Says: "Still Dirrty"—Christina Aguilera
This song makes me want to run through a field of flowers and embrace not just my sexuality, but the freedom I have to choose how I express it.
Meredith Says: "Take a Bow"—Rihanna
A) Rihanna is just a super awesome woman and B) I love a woman who stands up for herself. GTFO jerk!
Flora Says: "Smile"—Lily Allen
Lily Allen is the cheeky, fabulous, ballsy friend I wish I had. This song is tongue-in-cheek and makes me smile, reminisce about past relationships and realize, every time, IT'S GONNA BE JUST FINE!
Kate Says: "Its On the Rocks"—The Donnas
One of the first musical obsessions, The Donnas stand for everything badass about women to me. They don't give a fuck, are happy to break anything (including your face), and when it comes to guys . . . well, as the song says, nothing's off limits—including keying his Mercedes.
