HARDOUTHERE – Lily Allen: has she turned to writing feminist anthems?

I was nearly in tears at this video it’s just so witty and clever as you’d expect from Lily! But it really feels like she’s taken her songwriting to yet another level, this time taking a bite out of the sexist music industry and highlighting how it portrays women as objects. The song is important because it’s asking young girls to think about how they are portrayed and who their ‘heroes’ are. Yet, unlike many feminist anthems it’s more likely that young people will listen to HARDOUTHERE as its catchy and glittering with pop success. Have a listen!
