Empress of shares feminist anthem “Woman Is A Word”

Empress of‘s new track “Woman Is A Word” is out via Terrible Records.

Last year, Empress Of shared her incredible debut album Me, which features “How Do You Do It,” our favorite track of 2015. Keeping up the momentum, Lorely Rodriguez is now returning with another great offering, “Woman Is A Word.” This B-side, which surprisingly did not make the final cut, is the feminist anthem the world needs right now. “This song means so much to me,” she explained on Twitter. “I wrote it as a reaction to feeling like the word “woman” put me in a box of things I was capable to do.”

Sadly, sexism is still a big issue in the music industry and in our daily lives. Nevertheless, more and more female artists are raising their voice to address the problem and protest against it, from Grimes, to Björk, or Lauren Mayberry of CHVRCHES. And we are living for it.

“Woman Is A Word” is released just after Darkstar unveiled their collaboration with Empress Of for their track “Reformer.”
