“Now this is a song to celebrate. The conscious liberation of the female state! Mothers, daughters and their daughters too. Woman to woman. We’re singin’ with you. The inferior sex got a new exterior. We got doctors, lawyers, politicians too. Everybody, take a look around. Can you see, can you see, can you see. There’s a woman right next to you.” Annie Lennox

Sisters Are Doin’ It for Themselves

“Sisters are doin’ it for themselves. Standin’ on their own two feet. And ringin’ on their own bells. Sisters are doin’ it for themselves.”
Annie Lennox & Dave Stewart
