"We Don’t Eat", James Vincent McMorrow

So we don’t eat until your father’s at the table
We don’t drink until the devil’s turned to dust
Never once has any man I’ve met been able to love
So if I were you, my friend, I’d have a little trust

Taking Country Music Back from the Bros

How the performers Maddie and Tae are fighting back against sexist depictions of women in country music: http://nyr.kr/1Adj9Rd

“Save for Kacey Musgraves—the twenty-five-year-old singer-songwriter who is critically lauded, widely respected, but criminally underplayed on the radio—the people doing the talking have been mostly established acts, and mostly men. ‘Girl in a Country Song’ sounds awfully cheery for a protest song, but it is possible to be savvy and brave at the same time.”

Playlist: New Pop Feminism
In the 1990s TLC, Destiny’s Child, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Missy Elliot, Xena: Warrior Princess, and the Spice Girls introduced an entire generation to messages of girl power and gender equality.
Today, new art and artists have taken up that call, from Beyonce to Orange Is The New Black, from Girls to Lorde. Theirs is not the feminism of the 90s; greater attention is paid to issues of intersectionality between gender, race, sexuality, and class, and the influx of the internet and fragmentations in media and culture have changed the feminist landscape. But many of the underlying issues are the same, now told through new voices. 
Pop culture can be problematic, but it’s also how a lot of people are first introduced to important ideas. With this week’s playlist, we pay tribute to the feminists making waves here and now, ushering in a new generation of girl power
