My Contribution to the #MeToo Movement – Songs that Empower
First of all, Harvey Weinstein, you are a pig. For my nearly 40 years of playing music on the radio, I take some credit for the #MeToo movement.
The empowering songs I've played on the airwaves have inspired me and my listeners to be strong, invincible and Helen Reddy was one of the first women to tell the world, 'I can do anything' back in 1975.
This next song is about the importance of knowing what makes us tick, our circle of angels, and its simple message just makes us feel secure. Jessica Andrews sure rocks this hit from 2001.
Shania's sense of humor shines along with her incredible talent in 'Honey I'm Home' from 1997. Her personal story oozes strength and grit. She was on the verge of a breakthrough in Nashville in 1987 when her parents were killed in a car crash. She shelved her dreams and moved back home to become a surrogate mother to her four siblings.
This song celebrates beautiful women of all stages of life, "from one to 99". It encourages us to love ourselves the way we are."This One’s for the Girls" by Martina McBride (2003)
Here is such a sweet song from Lee Ann Womack, released in 2000. as Emily Dickenson said,“Hope” is the thing with feathers -That perches in the soul - And sings the tune without the words -
I could go on and on but I share one last song that was my anthem as a teen and still pumps me up to this day...'Don't Rain on My Parade' and Barbra Streisand ...
