Five Empowering Videos by Female Artists

Lily Allen has a baggy p***y according to her new song Hard Out There, writes Rena Dipti Annobil.

She’s also launched a somewhat feminist video (which you’ve probably seen) to accompany the track.

I say somewhat because it includes a send-up of Robin Thicke’s Blurred Lines video and has awesome lyrics like ‘Don’t need to shake my a** for you ‘cos I’ve got a brain’. BUT… They are sung whilst Lily is ‘twerked’ on by nearly naked backing dancers.

Yeah I know it’s called satire, but I just think with so many close ups of thong-clad butts it’s not very obvious it’s a joke.

Even so, I like the lyrics and Lily herself has stated that her new album has some pretty feminist vibes, which is something I invite all girls to embrace because, let’s face it, songs like this are far outweighed by the alternative (songs and videos that objectify women, insult them, and feature them half naked  in a non-ironic way)!

So, with all this in mind I decided to come up with a shortlist of songs with strong ‘feminist vibes’, which I think all teenage girls out there need to hear.

In my opinion these ladies did it slightly better than Lily’s latest offering.
