My Favorite Feminist Videos Of 2016

If I can say nothing else, I can say 2016 was a reminderof why feminism is still needed.

The first is a reboot of the classic Christmas song, Baby It’s Cold Outside. While it is a recognized Christmas song, it is a song about a non-consensual sexual encounter between a man and a woman. Granted, it was released in 1944, but is still bothersome.

Thankfully, two performers decided to update the song while removing the innuendo about the non-consensual sexual encounter. This is a song I can appreciate.

The other song was released last week. A spoof of the song How Lovely To Be A Woman from the musical Bye Bye Birdie, it perfectly illustrates how far we have not come in 2016.

I don’t know about anyone else, but I am ready for 2017.
