Welcome to POWER PLAYS, a column for your feminist listening pleasure in which we gather up our favorite jams and then make ’em into mixtapes!
When you’re a Feminist Majority Foundation intern, you attend a lot of rallies, demonstrations, and protests. As the intern cohort from this summer worked with me to complete the biographical section of our intern website, one of the questions we all answered was: “What is your favorite pre-rally pump-up song?”
We decided to make a playlist out of the responses. We hope this playlist will get you energized during your next political protest, trip to the gym, or even your morning commute. Happy rallying, and tell us your own pump-up jams in the comments!
