Eres ciudadana de segunda clase / sin privilegios y sin honor / porque yo doy la plata / estas forzada a rendirme honores y seguir mi humor / búscate un trabajo, estudia algo / la mitad del sueldo y doble labor si te quejas hay esta la puerta / no estas autorizada para dar opinión / Corazones rojos, corazones fuertes

Listen as your day unfolds / Challenge what the future holds / Try and keep your head up to the skyLovers, they may cause you tears / Go ahead release your fears / Stand up and be counted / Don't be ashamed to cry / You gotta be bad, you gotta be bold / You gotta be wiser, you gotta be hard / You gotta be tough, you gotta be stronger / You gotta be cool, you gotta be calm / You gotta stay together

15. Dido – Hunter

With one light on in one room / I know you’re up when I get home / With one small step upon the stair / I know your look when I get there / If you were a king up there on your throne / Would you be wise enough to let me go / For this queen you think you own / Wants to be a hunter again / Wants to see the world alone again / To take a chance on life again / So let me go

16. Britney Spears - Stronger

Hush.. just stop / there's nothing you can do or say (baby) / I've had enough /I'm not your property as from today (baby) / you might think that I wont make it on my own but now I’m stronger than yesterday / Now it’s nothing but my way / my loneliness ain't killing me no more

17. Green Day – She

She screams in silence / A sullen riot penetrating through her mind / Waiting for a sign to smash the silence / With the brick of self control / Are you locked up in a world / That’s been planned out for you? / Are you feeling like a social tool without use ?

18. John Lennon - Woman is the Nigger of the World

We make her paint her face and dance / If she won’t be a slave, we say that she don’t love us / If she’s real, we say she’s trying to be a man / While putting her down, we pretend that she’s above us / Woman is the nigger of the world...yes she is / If you don’t believe me, take a look at the one you’re with / Woman is the slave of the slaves / Ah, yeah...better scream about it

19. Ciara - Like a Boy

What If I?.../Had A Thing On The Side? Made Ya Cry? Would The Rules Change Up?...Or Would They Still Apply?... If I Played You Like A Toy?...Sometimes I Wish I Could Act Like A Boy

20. Silvio Rodriguez - Mujeres

Me estremeció la mujer que parió once hijos / En el tiempo de la harina y un kilo de pan / Y los miró endurecerse mascando carijos / Me estremeció porque era mi abuela además / Me estremecieron mujeres
Que la historia anotó entre laurels / Y otras desconocidas, gigantes / Que no hay libro que las aguante / Me han estremecido un montón de mujeres/ Mujeres de fuego, mujeres de nieve
