Celebrate Women In Music on #InternationalWomensDay

Today I saw a Spotify campaign titled #FeminizeYourPlaylists where they would duplicate your Spotify playlists and replace all the male artists with similar female artists – genius.

To help celebrate the wonderful women of today and yesterday who have blessed us with the soundtracks of our lives, I’ve revamped my Girl Power playlist (which you can find HERE) and have put together a few songs by some of my favorite women in music for you below – enjoy!
