FlourishAnyway believes there is a playlist for just about any situation and is on a mission to unite and entertain the world through song.

This One's for the Girls: Songs About Female Empowerment

Girls can be anything they want to be. Celebrate the awesomeness of being female with songs from this playlist.

Girls can be anything they want to be. Celebrate the awesomeness of being female with songs from this playlist.

Here's a Power Boost

For all the women in our lives who need a power boost of encouragement, this Girl Power Playlist is for you!

It's for women like my sister, facing divorce with three young boys to raise. After having her trust violated by a scoundrel, she's now struggling to stand on her own again. Rebuild your personal strength and stay strong, beautiful lady!

It's also for smart and courageous young ladies like my daughter. They are breaking down career barriers in traditionally masculine fields. She is enrolled in an honors engineering program where girls are outnumbered four to one (as they often are in science, technology, engineering and math). Every day she demonstrates that she is gritty as well as pretty. Plus, she's one of their top students!

Lastly, this female empowerment playlist is a shout-out to women like my mother and aunt, who have assumed care taking roles for my ailing grandmother. Increasingly, they have become her personal health care advocates and providers, companions, and surrogate decision makers. Unless you've walked in those shoes or witnessed the work that goes into such care taking, it's hard to truly appreciate the investment of time, resources, and emotional energy.

Why not make a custom playlist to encourage the special women in your life — or yourself — to keep being brave, strong, and fighting the good fight?

1. "Confident" by Demi Lavato (2015)

Confident women don't let anyone—men or other women—trash talk or undermine their dignity. They make their own choices about self-identity and to be who they are, flaws and all. Don't let anyone tear you down. Look them straight in the eye, head high.

2. “Fight Song” by Rachel Platten (2015)

You may be one person in this big ole' world, but you have the ability to impact monumental change through your voice and actions. Don't ever underestimate your capacity for influence:

Like a small boat on the ocean
Sending big waves into motion
Like how a single word can make a heart open
I might only have one match
But I can make an explosion.

"With confidence, you have won before you have started." - Marcus Garvey, Jamaican political leader

"With confidence, you have won before you have started." - Marcus Garvey, Jamaican political leader

3. “Run the World (Girls)” by Beyoncé (2011)

Queen BeyBey gives a shout out to all the girls who run the world. (And let's be real, don't we?) We're the girls who work nine to five for a paycheck, are strong enough to bear the children then get back to business.

4. “Try” by Colbie Caillat (2014)

Women do so much to try to fit the expectations of others, starting with body image. But this empowering song affirms that you are enough, plain and simple, just the way you are. You don't have to try so hard. You just have to accept yourself.

"The most beautiful thing you can wear is confidence." - Blake Lively, American actress

"The most beautiful thing you can wear is confidence." - Blake Lively, American actress

5. “Love Myself” by Hailee Steinfeld (2015)

Instead of staying in an unhealthy relationship, an empowered woman isn't afraid to stand on her own: "Gonna love myself. No, I don't need anybody else. I love me."

This song is a tribute to women of all ages who have left dysfunctional or unsatisfying relationships. Just because you're alone doesn't have to mean you're lonely!

6. “Grown Woman” by Beyoncé (2013)

You are one confident adult woman, and it took you awhile to get here. Now that you're wearing big girl panties, you do what you want and you don't apologize for your choices. This is your power anthem, and you've got it goin' on!

They love the way I walk
‘Cause I walk with a vengeance
And they listen to me when I talk 'cause I ain't pretending
It took a while, now I understand just where I'm goin'
I know the world and I know who I am, it's 'bout time I show it.

7. “Who Says” by Selena Gomez (2011)

As the powerful, self-knowing person that you are, you define yourself. This song asks all the important questions, such as

  • Who says you're not star potential?
  • Who says you're not presidential?
  • Who says you can't be in movies?
  • Who says you don't pass the test?
  • Who says you can't be the best?
  • Who says you're not perfect?
  • Who says you're not worth it?

8. “F**kin’ Perfect” by Pink (2010)

You know all the bad things you tell yourself about how you're not good enough, not pretty enough, you'll never amount to anything, and no one will ever love you? Stop that right now. I mean it, and so does P!nk. This song demands that you quiet those voices for good and understand that You. Are. Enough.

9. "This One’s for the Girls" by Martina McBride (2003)

From high school girls to young career women to a middle-aged woman trying to hold off the ravages of time, this uplifting song celebrates beautiful women of all stages of life, "from one to 99". It encourages them to dream with all they have, love without holding back, and love themselves the way they are.

10. "Nothing In Between (B*tch)" by Meredith Brooks (1997)

Women occupy many roles, and this song playfully celebrates all of them, from sweet to sassy to seductress, from mom to mean to everything in between:

I'm a b*tch, I'm a lover
I'm a child, I'm a mother
I'm a sinner, I'm a saint
I do not feel ashamed.
I'm your hell, I'm your dream
I'm nothing in between
You know you wouldn't want it any other way.

11. "Roar" by Katy Perry (2013)

Katy Perry celebrates the glorious transformation of a wimpy woman who is afraid to proclaim her opinion and lead her own way into an eye-of-the-tiger true fighting spirit. Her new self knows precisely what she wants and isn't afraid to strike back. If you're a champion who dances through fire and you roar like a lion, then here's your power anthem!

10 Ideas for Self-Empowerment

IdeaExample / Comment

1. Practice Affirmations

"I know what I'm doing;" "I can achieve anything I set my mind to."

2. Kick Perfect to the Curb

Strive for personal excellence, not perfection. Realize when "good enough" really IS good enough.

3. Value Your Strengths

Be able to name what you're good at. Write them down. Share your talents with the world.

4. Treat Yourself and Others With Respect

Kindness and courtesy are the currency of dignity.

5. Look People In the Eye and Stand Tall

Posture is important. It tells the world what you think of yourself.

6. Learn or Do Something New

Never stop growing.

7. Speak With Authority

Use an authoritative tone and avoid "ums," "ah," and upspeak.

8. Surround Yourself With Positive People

Reduce the impact of the Negative Nellies in your life.

9. Stop That Negative Self-Talk

Why are you doing this to yourself? Remember the affirmations? Repeat enough times until you believe them!

10. Fake It Until You Make It

Even if you don't feel confident and powerful, practice behaving that way. Soon, it will become your habit.

12. "Beautiful" by Christina Aguilera (2002)

Beautiful no matter water they say ... this song speaks to the power of resilience and knowing your own worth. When others' words shout one message, let your inner voice remain firm, steady, and unwavering in the knowledge that you only need yourself for validation.

13. “Secrets” by Mary Lambert (2014)

What a liberating feeling to let all your secrets out! This song empowers women to just get over hiding all the things that they've been working so hard to keep hidden. Secrecy takes so much work and no one really cares all that much what you're hiding anyway! They've got their own secrets to protect. Just get over it and get on with your life.

14. "Superwoman" by Alicia Keys (2008)

This inspiring song is a tribute to all mothers (and other women) who endeavor to support humanity and make this world a better place. We're not always your obvious heroes, but underneath you'll find the vest, the "S" on the chest as we make this world a better place. Admit it: aren't you a superwoman?

15. "Good Woman Down" by Mary J. Blige (2006)

This song provides a rousing word of encouragement from Mary J. Blige to all her troubled sisters who are going through pain and hardship. While you may have good reasons for worry and consternation, she provides the gift of this knowledge: You can't hold a good woman down. Do you feel your fire within? Get up! Get up! Get up!

16. "I Am Woman" by Helen Reddy (1972)

This high-spirited song describes women's progressive march forward. Once a signature song of the women's liberation movement, it's now a testament to our journey and powerful connection to one another. No Girl Power Playlist would be complete without it!

17. “Salute” by Little Mix (2013)

This song is a call to attention for all ladies of the world to stand together as something more than just a pretty object. Whether you wear "killer heels, sneakers, pumps or lace up your boots," it's a salute to you as a woman -- an individual, an original.

18. "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" by Cyndi Lauper (1983)

This classic is a reminder that it's not just the guys who want to go out and have a good time. Girls want to break free of expectations and just relax and have a good time, too!

19. “All About That Bass” by Meghan Trainor (2014)

Empowered women know that beauty comes in all sizes, shapes, shades, and life stages. This song replaces fat shaming with a celebration of "bringing booty back" and having "all the right junk in all the right places." It affirms that "every inch of you is perfect from the bottom to the top." As a strong, vibrant female, worry less about your size than your health and well being.

"There are powers inside of you which, if you could discover and use, would make of you everything you ever dreamed or imagined you could become." - Orison Swett Marden, American motivational author

20. "Phenomenal Woman" by Olivia Newton-John (2005)

A confident female doesn't necessarily need to shout or be the most physically attractive woman to turn heads. She captivates and inspires others because she completely owns her identity. This uplifting and powerful song reveals how to do just that.

Questions & Answers

Question: I need a song for my school end-of-year talent show and don't want anything mushy but strong and upbeat what do you recommend?

Answer: Here are a couple of my favorites:

1) "I Will Survive" by Gloria Gaynor (1978)

2) "Hit Me with Your Best Shot" by Pat Benatar (1980)

3) "Fire Under My Feet" by Leona Lewis (2015)

4) "You Gotta Be" by Des'ree (1994)

These strong gals aren't mushy.

You may want to check out the Positive Vibe Playlist: Happy and Uplifting Songs to Put You in a Good Mood. https://spinditty.com/playlists/Feel-Great-Playlis...

Question: How can I get my song that promotes women, values, and respect on your list?

Answer: Because of the volume of such requests, I cannot put each original song on the playlist. However, if you think your song can compete with the professional-level songs on the playlist, please submit it, and I will be happy to consider it. Submit a comment in the Comment Section of the article (no account is required).

In your comment, describe the title of the song, the name of the performer, and the year it was released. You can insert a link so that I can listen to the song, but links are usually removed from comments on this website. You can also include additional information such as what the song is about or what inspired the song if you'd like. Even if I don't end up adding it to the playlist, people do read the comments so they will see it. I hope this helps.

Question: Can you suggest a song similar to that of "High Heels" by JoJo (2016)?

Answer: JoJo's "High Heels" (2016) is a sexually-charged song about a vengeful woman who puts on her little black dress and high heels and leaves her relationship after she is cheated on. While I'm uncertain how you'd like my suggested song to be similar -- revenge theme, shoe theme, cheating and leaving theme, or just the general vibe of the song -- I'm going to offer up several strong, sexy female songs and then recommend additional playlists to take a look at.

1) “These Boots Were Made For Walkin'” by Nancy Sinatra (1966) - a sassy, confident woman promises to get even when she discovers her man has cheated

2) “Dangerous Woman” by Ariana Grande (2016) - this sexually charged song is about a take-charge woman who isn't afraid to display the "bad girl" side of herself

3) “Bitch (Nothing In Between)” by Meredith Brooks (1997) - this strong woman basically tells her man to grow the "ef" up and just accept her as she is because she is a complex amalgamation of many roles

If those aren't what you're looking for, check out the following Spinditty playlists for songs that would be appropriate:

1) "Revenge Playlist: Songs About Getting Even" http://hub.me/ajUpL

2) "Pop and Rock Songs About Cheating and Lying" http://hub.me/agDRJ

3) "Songs About Shoes, High Heels, and Boots" http://hub.me/akHVb

Peggy - Long overdue! We will have to fight for VP this next time around and soldier on.

Peggy Woods from Houston, Texas on May 10, 2020:

This song list of yours has garnished more comments than most. It is great that women today can achieve just about anything that they desire. Back when I was a youth, most women chose to be teachers or nurses. Now the employment opportunities are endless, from astronauts to (hopefully) President of the United States. We are overdue on that last one!

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on April 13, 2020:

Frank - I'm intrigued! I think you should do it.

Frank van Dijk on April 12, 2020:

Some funny, some serious but not preachy.

For example, Beautiful, by Christina Aguilera, opens with what I can only describe as crooning. This sounds sensual when done by her... If I were to do this as a baritone, that probably becomes funny. So we'd put humor in by showing how some things become weird when done by guys. The message of the song however stays intact.

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on April 11, 2020:

Frank - I don't think it's disrespectful at all. Of course, it's all in how it's done (funny vs. preachy). Sounds like a good idea.

Frank van Dijk on April 11, 2020:

Thanks for this amazing list. I have a question, and would love your opinion. I'm writing a theater show with a few friends, and our idea is to perform songs by woman, songs with important messages. But, they must be messages that men never tell each other. They are then to be performed by men. We talk about the songs, explain why we chose them and then perform them. Do you think this is disrespectful/appropriation, or would you think this is a good idea, to get these amazing messages to a male audience?

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on January 25, 2020:

Jennifer - Thanks for the suggestions. I put one of these songs on the Motivation & Leadership playlist and the other on the playlist, Songs About Missing Someone You Love.

JENNIFER on January 25, 2020:

Brave by Nichole Nordeman and Courage by Celine Dion. :)

Most Girls by P!nk

Sorry Not Sorry by Demi Lovato

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on December 04, 2019:

LaustCawz - I'm not sure I saw Bear's comment, but I appreciate your comment, including the reference to the documentary which I'll have to look for. I'm not sure how many of my playlists you've seen, but I have 175-200 and counting! Some of my best ideas come from readers.

LaustCawz on December 03, 2019:

Flourish Anyway--i keep finding more of your lists! I think Bear's observation has had the result of some extreme or radical feminists trying to use some of these songs to belittle men without realizing they originated with men as writers. For an example of the opposite (not really an "empowerment" song, but never mind), one song written by 2 women (Annette Tucker & Nancie Mantz) that was popularized by a male group (The Electric Prunes) was "I Had Too Much To Dream Last Night". In 2016, a woman named Cassie Jaye directed a documentary called "The Red Pill" (in case you or &/or others haven't heard of it) that she meant to be an expose of the growing men's movement as a misogynistic fraud. She discovered that she'd made many assumptions that simply weren't so or were misleading.

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on November 17, 2019:

Wren - Thanks for the thumbs up. I appreciate the encouragement.

Wren WIlder from Los Angeles on November 17, 2019:

I love this post! A good old fashioned fem-power playlist should be in everybody's possession!

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on September 29, 2019:

Anonymous - I can't place the song right now, but I'm hoping a reader can help out. If so, I hope they will offer a comment in the Comment Section.

Anonymous on September 29, 2019:

I've been trying to find a song i heard recently. All i remember was its a female singer, singing about how she isnt reliant on him. i cant find it anywhere! can you help?

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on September 28, 2019:

Musical Magician - Thanks for the recommendation. I've added the song to the playlist, "Getting Over You Playlist: Songs About Struggling to Forget an Ex."

Musical Magician on September 27, 2019:

Salt by Ava Max could also be added to the list (2018)

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on September 05, 2019:

Jimmy - Thank you for the suggestions. I added the Meghan Trainor song. Have a wonderful weekend!

Jimmy on September 03, 2019:

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on September 01, 2019:

Dion - I appreciate your kind words of support. Always have confidence in yourself.

Dion on September 01, 2019:

I love your list, Ms. Thank you for the ways to be confident.

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on August 05, 2019:

Lea - Thank you for this suggestion. I have added it here and to the playlist of songs about being beautiful inside and out.

Lea on August 02, 2019:

Add "S.L.U.T." by Bea Miller (2018)

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on July 17, 2019:

Lilly Fontaine on July 06, 2019:

I was researching songs for the intro, intermission, and closing for an empowerment play I will be presenting. Thank you for your thorough list. This has helped me greatly with my choice of music.

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on May 28, 2019:

Mary Lee - That's a great addition! Thank you!

Mary Lee on May 27, 2019:

I think that My Way by Ava Max could be a good addition

Please note that when Whitney Houston recorded I'm Every Woman, it was a remake. The original is by Chaka Khan. I would add Lost Ones by Lauryn Hill.
