We have been focusing on individual feminist songs nominated by folks associated with the SIUE Women’s Studies program or with me as Director. However, we are by no means the first–nor shall we be the last–to do a series on feminist songs. Today, on our second-to-last day of the series, I present links to other series on feminist songs from a variety of sources. These provide a knowledge of genres that goes far beyond the knowledge distributed amongst the folks who nominated songs for our series. Enjoy!
