An empowered woman is a beautiful woman! All around the world, women are fighting for equality and justice. The causes are many and as varied as the women themselves: pay inequality in the United States, genital mutilation in Ethiopia, and forced marriages as children in India.

But that doesn’t mean they’re not fighting for their rights!
This list of our seven favorite empowering songs will give any woman a boost of self-assurance, even when it seems like inequality can never be overcome.
It can, and we will!

‘Cause I am a champion and you’re gonna hear me roar!
