This is a rather belated fill for insmallpackages
, for the wish Music with explicitly feminist and/or queer lyrics
. As usual I began with enthusiasm and the intention of finishing before the holidays, and then...well. I may have got a little carried away. Music and feminism are two of my favourite things, and I had a great deal of fun putting this together. I have a pretty flexible definition of feminism, but I hope, wisher, that there is something in here that you enjoy!
Content warnings: this is feminism, and there are lyrics that address some tough stuff, including sexism, racism, and body image. There is also a section of music that specifically addresses domestic violence and violence against women, which is under a spoiler cut for those who may be triggered.
And without further ado, we begin with the song that introduced me to feminism, many many years ago...glynis johns - sister suffragette
we're clearly soldiers in petticoats
and dauntless crusaders for women's votes!( i always knew you were one of us!Collapse )
