With over 439 million clicks on YouTube, “Run the World” is arguably the most popular song on this list. Beyoncé published the work back in 2011. The singer shows in the video that you can be feminine and strong. With “Run the World” she set a great example for all women in the music scene, which is still relevant today. But it not only encourages the artists but all women that they do not have to hide and that they are strong enough to create anything.

Camp Cope - The Opener

In 2018 Camp Cope released the song "The Opener". The Australian trio are known for fighting against sexism in the music industry. In “The Opener” they sing “It's another man telling us to book a smaller venue” and thus consciously address the men in the musical landscape. They do not want to be belittled by the male population and therefore provoke them. Because they just want to do their thing without someone telling them they can't do it. And this is exactly the example we should all follow.

Bikini Kill - Rebel Girl

The American punk band Bikini Kill released their single "Rebel Girl" back in 1993, making the song the oldest on our list. But that doesn't make it any less relevant. Bikini Kill makes it clear to us that we should keep women together. In "Rebel Girl" you sing about the unconditional, platonic love for your best friend. But she is currently rebelling and enjoying her life to the full. Bikini Kill show us that every girl should just do what she wants and that we should support each other and give each other support.

M.I.A - Bad Girls

The next song is "Bad Girls" by M.I.A. - The singer from Sri Lanka tells us about breaking rules and living your life without compromise. The video shows a lot of fast cars driven by women. M.I.A sings “suki suki”, this is Arabic and means something like “drive, drive”. In doing so, she directs herself and primarily provokes the men in Saudi Arabia. There it is forbidden for women to drive a car. It shows us how easy it can be to break rules and that we should stand up for our principles.

Princess Nokia - Tomboy

Women and hip hop? Does that go together? And whether! You should never ask yourself that question again. Princess Nokia shows us in "Tomboy" that female MCs can also rap their lines extremely casually. She also shows us that being feminine is not just about shopping for shoes and putting on lipstick - no, we girls can do anything and be anything we want. In her video, Princess Nokia sometimes plays basketball, sometimes she smokes, sometimes she skates. She just does what she wants and we should take an example from that.

Sxtn - He wants sex

Almost two years ago SXTN released the song "He wants sex". You rap about a situation that almost every girl has experienced. It's about a guy trying to get the girl around and we all know what he wants - he wants sex. They show us that just because women may dress provocatively or wear a little neckline does not mean that the world of men is asking them to turn them on. We can wear what we want and look what we want. Dear girls, unfold as you want!

Courtney Barnett - Nameless, Faceless

The Australian Courtney Barnett sings in "Nameless, Faceless" about the prejudices against the female sex and the inaccuracy of them. If we want, we can walk through the park at night and don't get scared - yes, that's possible, because we are anything but the "weaker sex". We can do what we want and we are not afraid!

Demi Lovato - Confident

We don't need to mention that Demi Lovato is an absolute power woman. She is a singer, songwriter and actress. So you shouldn't underestimate her - and that's exactly what she sings about in “Confident”. Demi Lovato encourages all women to feel good and damn sexy in their own skin. You should be confident and don't have to hide for anything.

Danger Dan - sand in the eyes

Danger Dan delivered his single "Sand in die Augen" almost a year ago, making him the only male performer on our list. But that doesn't make this song any less important. In his song, Danger Dan wonders why women are still disadvantaged in today's world. And that's exactly what we ask ourselves. Danger Dan tells about the body reduction in women, the difference in salaries between the sexes and also about the unfairly distributed positions in the world of work. With this he expresses that he finally wants to feel equality.

The band around power front woman Jennifer Weist makes the men’s world a challenge with “Hengstin”. Women should no longer let themselves be “chained” and not do something just because a guy wants them to. They should get their own way, not let anyone dictate anything and just do their thing. Because the only one who can stand in a woman's way is herself and not just any man.
