The first (non-children's) record albums I ever owned were Helen Reddy's Greatest Hits and an Anne Murray album. I became a bit embarrassed of this next song in my later teens and even gave it away to my mother. But the song is still relevant today, and now I can appreciate it again for what it was in its time and for what it still means today.
I Am Woman (1972) / Helen Reddy
This next song comes to mind quite a bit when I need a confidence boost. If you read this blog regularly you will know that I have always been a big fan of Julie Andrews. While this song may not be about any feminist ideals, it is certainly about being a strong person and getting on with things despite difficulties, which is what the women's movement has always had to do.
I Have Confidence / Julie Andrews
Just a reminder of one of those strong women who never gave up.
