Feminist Friendly Culture- Potpourri Edition
November 4, 2011 3 Comments
Today’s entries are from various artists. I’m not claiming that everything these artists produce is feminist-friendly. Indeed– it is difficult to find artists that meet my standards for this series. As a reminder, I’ll mention my three criteria:
1. Zero misogyny is present in the work.
2. The artist(s) is/are female.
3. Relationships with men are not the sole/main focus of the cultural offering.
Without further ado, please check out these feminist-friendly songs.
From Sarah Harmer
“Oleander” (about growing a flower)
“Lodestar” (taking the boat out at night)
“Escarpment Blues” (save the land!)
Sarah Harmer is just an overall excellent Canadian musician. I can’t say that all of her music is feminist-friendly, but I love her.
From Butterfly Boucher
“Another White Dash” (song about road-tripping away from home)
“Life is Short” (Rather cliche, but still fun)
From Jesca Hoop
“Big Fish” (about leaving town)
“Money” (about selling out- the video is kind of strange)
“Push That Knot Away” (about fighting fear)
I hope you’ve enjoyed these recommendations. Feel free to make your own in the comments section.
