  1. 1

    I'm Every Woman by Chaka-Khan

    “I'm every womanIt's all in meAnything you want done babyI do it naturally”The 80's Hallelujah to Femininity! Whether the Chaka Khan or Whitney Houston version is your favorite one… this song has lasted for generations and will never get old! The song oozes positivity and sexiness all over... and over again and on top of that celebrates the versatility of women! It has a strong and clear message that makes you feel proud to be a woman!

  2. 2

    I Will Survive by Gloria Gaynor

    “No, not I, I will surviveLong as I know how to loveI know I'll stay aliveI've got all my life to liveAnd all my love to give and I'll surviveI, I, I will survive”A timeless Disco track that never lost its relevance! I will survive takes you on a fun ride to self discovery, takes all your heart- break and disappointment and turns it into an optimistic hopeful message! Face your battles, fight harder and never forgot to have some fun! :)This song definitely puts a smile on your face! :)

  3. 3

    Someone Like You by Adele

    “Never mind I'll find someone like youI wish nothing but the bestFor you too, don't forget meI beg, I'll remember you saidSometimes it lasts in loveBut sometimes it hurts instead”Nobody can do "bitter", "sad" and at the same time "roar with strength and hope" like Adele. This song's empowering element grows from the vulnerability of the lyrics and the somehow parodied scenes in the story that's created! The song urges you to move on and keep on going even if you don't feel you have the strength left to do so... This song shows you that sadness and regret can be the key catalysts for empowering yourself!

  4. 4

    Survivor by Destiny Child

    “Now that you're out of my lifeI'm so much betterYou thought that I'd be weak without youBut I'm stronger”THE Ode to Independence! (Except maybe "Independent Women part I) Self- confidence, Inner Strength and Independence are the ingredients to conquer this jungle that is our life.... but everyone needs to be rescued from time to time! This song also portrays our wishful thinking of succeeding with pride and confidence over every single problem we are faced with! No man is an island I guess.... but no woman is either! :) (watch the video guys)

  5. 5

    Superwoman by Alicia Keys

    “This is for all the mothers fightingFor better days to comeAnd all my womenAll my women sitting here tryingTo come home before the sun”"Superwoman" takes you on a soul search to find your inner strength! Our perception is that in order to overcome our obstacles we have to tap into our superhuman powers! I also love that this song's paying homage to all the amazing mothers out there that work so hard day and night to make life for their children beautiful! Ergo, let's all put on our vests with an S on our chest! :D

  6. 6

    I Hope You Dance by LeeAnn Womack

    “May you never take one single breath for granted,God forbid love ever leave you empty handed,”"I hope you dance" is empowering in the gentleness and love with which this message is told! I think everyone wishes to have someone in their life that wishes you all these things, someone who gives you the answers and empowers you to view life as a beautiful adventure and to leave a tragically romantic thought for its hardships! Let's start waltzing everyone :)

  7. 7

    You Don't Own Me by Lesley Gore

    “You don't own me, I'm not just one of your many toysYou don't own me, don't say I can't go with other boys”This is a great "Lady's Anthem" with a lyrical stairway to emancipation! Most people know this song from "The First Wives Club" (also very inspiring you should watch it ;)"You don't own me" has a very straight forward and in your face message! It's a real feel good song with a comedic character hidden underneath mixed with some 60's charm! :)

  8. 8

    Brave by Sara Bareilles

    “You can be the outcastOr be the backlash of somebody’s lack of loveOr you can start speaking up”I believe that Bravery and Courage are one of the highest achievements of a human being... a few seconds of bravery can change your whole life! This song also speaks about how we tackle things in life that we feel are unjust and it teaches us to be cautious with how we go about using words, treating others... treating ourselves... The message of this song is to "Live courageously" (not stupidly... don't confuse those two)

  9. 9

    Defying Gravity by Wicked

    “I'm through accepting limits'Cause someone says they're soSome things I cannot changeBut 'til I try, I'll never know!”You don't have to know the story of the Broadway Musical "Wicked" to immediately get caught up in the message of "Defying Gravity"! Once this song is taken out of its context (away from the Magical world and its two witches) you will see on how many different levels it will inspire you! The song could have been titled "I believe I can fly" (also inspiring ;) but the meaning of "Defying Gravity" actually takes this a whole step further! "Defying Gravity" empowers you to not only think outside the box but to defy all the limits, mental and physical that others have set for you! This song has become the Theme Song of many young girls all over the world! :)

  10. 10

    Firework by Katy Perry

    “Do you ever feel, feel so paper thinLike a house of cards, one blow from caving in”What I really like about this song is the picture it paints for us in the lyrics! It teaches us to embrace our imperfections and be proud of our true colors and in all Katy Perry fashion... let those color glitter and shine! Overcome the differences within yourself and you will find a rainbow of ways to express yourself! :)This song also lives through Katy Perry's vocals! So, GO KATY! :)
