Five Girl-Power Songs for Women's Day!

While some of these feminist songs focus on strengthening womanhood in general, they also try to pay tribute to inspiring women. Most of all, feminist songs talk about the shifting paradigm favouring women owing to their inherent caliber, struggle and will-power to succeed above their circumstances.

Here are five songs that can help you celebrate your day: 


* Patakha Guddi: Highway, which means a firebrand kite in Punjabi, is a song of soaring high and independence. It asks young women to be directionless and adventurous. To soar like a kite, to flow like rainwater, to be that crawling, rippling tree that no one can keep inside the house.



* Ziddi Dil: Mary Kom, The first song titled 'Ziddi Dil' from Priyanka Chopra's upcoming film 'Mary Kom' has been released. With lyrics like 'Bas khud ki hi sunta baatein yeh, Dil yeh ziddi hai', this maiden track catches the essence of the dedication depicted in the movie for boxing. The song is an inspiration for all and aptly depicts the never-say-die spirit of MC Mary Kom. 'Ziddi Dil' has been sung by singer Vishal Dadlani and been composed by Shashi Suman. 


* Badal Pe Paaon Hain: Chak De India: Shah Rukh Khan starrer Chak De India was a sports film but also celebrated the spirit of a female sportsmen. The song Badal Pe Paon Hain says that sky is the limit for success and there is no stopping.



* Jiya Re: His peppy numbers is featured on Anushka Sharma in Jab Tak Hai Jaan. The actress plays the role of a bold, independent and a strong-headed girl that never lives within boundaries. Jiya Re commemorates this very sprit and gives you the key to happy life. 


* O Gujariya: O Gujariya became one of the most popular songs owing to its fast pace blended with fantastic rhythm depicting a fast paced life with the female protagonist, (Kangana Ranaut) taking away the show with her bold and beautiful performance. One feels inherently emancipated listening to the lyrics. During the track one feels entranced to finally have embarked in an era of modernity where one does not need to do a role-play of a supposedly ‘good girl’.
