This has been highly requested, it took a while, but we have it now! I’ve compiled a playlist of 23 songs which my Instagram followers and I class as “Feminist Anthems” I have no doubt this playlist will grow as time goes on but below are 23 songs we all thought gave us that fighting feeling.
I Don’t Need Your Love – Six the Musical
Sassy, fun and overall proof that self-love is the best love!
Six – Six the Musical
It’s just all of Henry VIII’s ex-wives singing about being kickass, what more could you want?!
The Man – Taylor Swift
All about female vs male representation in the media, also just a bop™
I See Stars – Mean Girls the Musical
“You could make diamonds dull, you are so beautiful” is something I quote daily.
Love is a Battlefield – Pat Bentar
I love this song for two reasons. The first: my Mum introduced me to this banger, the second: the music video is the most iconic thing. It’s so eighties but has a very sweet message.
I’d Rather Be Me – Mean Girls the Musical
This song has it all. Going against stereotypes? Check. Being sarcastic? Check. Swearing at those who’ve stabbed you in the back? Check. Strong vocals and catchy tune? Check, check, check!!
Heart of Stone – Six the Musical
“You can build me up, you can tear me down, you can try but I’m unbreakable.” Is what I told myself while going into school everyday last year
Sexy – Mean Girls the Musical
“This is modern feminism talking, I expect to run the world in shoes I cannot walk in!” Need I say more?
This is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things – Taylor Swift
Cute and good message. That’s all.
Bad Blood – Taylor Swift
The videos with Taylor Swift girl gang. I remember watching it when I was younger and just wishing I was a part of that.
I Lived – One Republic
It may not be by a female artist but the message is still the same uplifting one.
Fight Song – Rachel Platten
It’s a feminist anthem, need I say more?
Just a Girl – No Doubt
Gwen Stephani, a feminist queen.
Girls Like Girls – Hayley Kiyoko
An LGBT and feminist anthem which shows you that you sometimes need to break the rules and cross the lines.
Run the World (Girls) – Beyoncé
It. Is. A. Feminist. Anthem.
I Will Survive – Gloria Gaydor
“Do you think I’d lay down and die? Oh no not I”
I’m Coming Out – Diana Ross
This song shows you girls can go out and have fun, in a glamour-filled way!
The Best Day – Taylor Swift
A sweet message and whenever I hear this song I think about my Mum.
Fearless – Mean Girls the Musical
Stand up to those bullies and toxic friends!
Shake It Off – Taylor Swift
Just dance to it. Dance to it and feel your troubles burn faster than the calories

Another LGBTQ+ anthem “and we see you over there on the internet, comparing all the girls who are killing it.”
