Today is International Women's Day 2021

  Here are some important quotes and some songs related to women and their issues. -Steve Otto

Break the Chains

Unleash the fury of women

As a mighty force for revolution -Jiang Qing/江青

Women are the real architects of society. - Cher

Always be a first-rate version of yourself instead of a second-rate version of somebody else. -Judy Garland

I am grateful to be a woman. I must have done something great in another life.- Maya Angelou

I have plowed and planted and gathered into barns, and no man could head me. And aren't I a woman?...

 .....That little man in black there, he says women can't have as much rights as men 'cause Christ wasn't a woman! Where did your Christ come from? Where did your Christ come from? From God and a woman! Man had nothing to do with Him.

- Sojourner Truth

“We, the women of this country, have no ballot even if we wished to use it, and the only way that we can be represented is to take a man to represent us. You men have made such a mess of it in representing us that we have not much confidence in asking you […] We [women] are the slaves of slaves. We are exploited more ruthlessly than men. - Lucy Parsons 

And here are some songs!:

Aretha Franklin - Respect

Patti Smith - Gloria 


Beyoncé - Run the World (Girls) 

Lesley Gore - You Don't Own Me
