Women's Liberation

In recognition of the 2017 Women's March on Washington, Smithsonian Folkways spotlights songs of women's liberation. Spanning several decades of material, the themes in this playlist range from labor conditions and civil rights to women's health and the legal system. Featuring artists such as Quetzal, Barbara Dane, Peggy Seeger, and Malvina Reynolds, Smithsonian Folkways honors the many women and men who contribute to furthering public discourse on women's rights.
