Thank you for clicking on this article and enjoy reading it!

Today's article will be about girl power in the music industry. I came to this idea because of my previous article about why men should be feminists too. Feminism, or with other words equality for all, is something that has to be talked about more and that's why I wanted to continue my writing about it.

In this article, I'll talk about female artists who gave women a powerful voice!

Now, lets get started.
