1960’s Pop singer Lesley Gore passed away today.
Mainly known for light, frothy songs like “It’s My Party” and “Judy’s Turn To Cry”, Ms. Gore released “You Don’t Own Me” in 1963, a song that would become an anthem of the feminist movement.
In her later years, Ms. Gore revealed that she had been living with her partner of 30 years, Lois Sasson.
RIP Lesley. While your mortal remains will vanish, your music and your legacy will live on.
