30+ Songs About Strong Women For Your Girl Power Playlist

Happy woman wearing headphones and dancing while listening to songs about strong women.

Songs about strong women are great. As a wise woman once said, “Who run the world? Girls!” Women are an essential part of society. Aside from the obvious reasons (like the fact that our bodies can withstand childbirth), we’re smart, strong, and determined. A world without women isn’t a world at all.

Despite this, women are continually at a disadvantage. On average, women make 82 cents to every dollar that men make (this is even lower for women of color). And, out of the top Fortune 500 companies, less than 5% are run by women. There are countries where it’s illegal for women to vote, go to school, or even drive a car.

But you know what? In spite of all of this, we’re also doing better than ever. On average, 66% of women graduate college, compared to 60% of men. Nearly 47% of women are now in the workforce too. We’re striving for equality and are making good progress.

Sometimes we need a reminder of how strong we are though. This is where songs about strong women come in. Whether you’re going through a breakup, having trouble at work, or simply need to be reminded of how much of a #womanboss you are, here are 34 of the best songs about strong women to help you feel more empowered.
