Women in songs

This didactic concert follows ten or more songs that have addressed the specific issues that affect women. The new Spanish education law means that gender and equality related issues should be present across the curriculum. Music is an ideal way to approach this topic.

The concert includes songs about abuse and conflict, "Woman in chains" (Tears for Fears), "Luka" (Suzanne Vega). Songs that reflect women confidently asserting themselves, from the 1960´s "These boots are made for walking" (Nancy Sinatra), the 1980´s "Girls just want to have fun" (Cyndi Lauper) to this millenium and Adele´s forceful "Rolling in the Deep". Songs that dwell on gender related feelings such as "Constant Craving (K. D. Lang) or Katy Perry´s feisty "I kissed a girl". Finally, a song that reflects that change is happening, Billie Eilish´s James Bond song, "No Time To Die",.... as she turns her back on the famous male icon.
