The future seems to be female thanks to all the Women’s Marches that took place around the world last weekend. Before more plans are made, however, both men and women alike must have the right feminist music on their playlists to fuel their passion to stomp out the patriarchy.

 

Here are 10 feminist anthems that your playlists needs ASAP!

 

1. “Independent Women Pt.1” by Destiny’s Child


 

“All the women, who are independent
Throw your hands up at me
All the honeys, who making money
Throw your hands up at me”

 

2. “Rise Up” by Andra Day


 

“I’ll rise up
I’ll rise unafraid
I’ll rise up
And I’ll do it a thousand times again”

 

3. “Oh No!” by Marina and the Diamonds


 

“I know exactly what I want and who I want to be
I know exactly why I walk and talk like a machine
I’m now becoming my own self-fulfilled prophecy”

 

4. “Fighter” by Christina Aguilera


 

“‘Cause it makes me that much stronger
Makes me work a little bit harder
It makes me that much wiser
So thanks for making me a fighter”

 

5. “U + UR Hand” by P!nk


 

“I’m not here for your entertainment,
You don’t really wanna mess with me tonight,
Just stop and take a second,
I was fine before you walked into my life”

 

6. “You Don’t Own Me” by Grace


 

“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”

 

7. “No Scrubs” by TLC


 

“I don’t want your number (no)
I don’t want to give you mine and (no)
I don’t want to meet you nowhere (no)
I don’t want none of your time and (no)”

 

8. “Salute” by Little Mix


 

“You think we’re just pretty things
You couldn’t be more wrong
(We’re standing strong, we carry on)
Knock us but we keep moving up”

 

9. “Love Myself” by Hailee Steinfeld


 

“Gonna love myself, no, I don’t need anybody else
Can’t help myself, no, I don’t need anybody else
Anytime that I like
(I love me)”

 

10. “I Am The Fire” by Halestorm


 

 

“I promise to myself, me and no one else
I am more than this
I am the fire”
