10 Women Empowerment Songs

    If you stand for equality, then you’re a feminist. Sorry to tell you. – Emma Watson –

    I grew up and still live in a society with gender stereotypes, where a woman’s worth is often being measured by the man next to her. For some part of my life, I have unfortunately followed those biases just because I wanted to avoid being judged by the society.

    As I grew older I started to oppose gender discrimination and started fighting for equal gender rights.

    I was pleasantly surprised to come across with Fashion Potluck, which is the first female-based social media platform. It was created from the desire to have a nurturing place on the internet for women to freely express themselves.

    I find the Fashion Potluck community and the message behind their work really amazing and inspiring. And in order to celebrate the Fashion Potluck Award Season, I would like to share with you my favorite 10 Female Empowerment Songs performed by female artists. 

    These songs are all about strong, independent and powerful women who get back up even after being knocked down and who break the renowned stereotypes about women.

    1. Des'ree - You Gotta Be


    2. Alicia Keys - Superwoman

    3. Diana Gordon - Woman

    4. Alicia Keys - Girl On Fire

    5. Hailee Steinfeld - Most Girls

    6. Destiney's Child - Independent Women

    7. Lesley Gore - You Don't Own Me


    8. Shania Twain - Man! I Feel Like A Woman

    9. Andra Day - Rise Up


    10. Katy Perry - Roar

    A balanced world is a better world. A gender-balanced world is only possible if we celebrate women's achievements, raise awareness against bias and take action for equality.

    And as Gloria Steinem, world-renowned feminist, journalist and activist once explained: 

    "The story of women's struggle for equality belongs to no single feminist nor to any one organization but to the collective efforts of all who care about human rights."
