Women in the music industry are rising to power more than ever, and I can’t think of a better way to celebrate this than a playlist full of classics. From The Shirelles to Beyonce, this playlist embodies just a small (yet important) part of the impact our fellow females have had on the musical world. We have come a long way since the 1800s when women performing music in public was immodest, to a time where women such as Whitney Houston and Pat Benatar are blowing away thousands of people at a time.
As much as we love to listen to our fair share of Justin Timberlake and Kanye, sometimes you just need a solid female empowerment playlist to jam to on the way to work! Check out the HelloFlo Spotify for more female inspirations.
