Did you know that designer Diane von Furstenberg compiled a 12-track CD full of girl-power music, to fundraise for women worldwide? Proceeds from her “Proud to be Woman” album benefit Vital Voices, a non-profit that invests in emerging and established women leaders worldwide who are combating violence, encouraging political participation, and building successful businesses. Educating girls of course is the first step to ensuring that there will be many more of these women leaders in the future. One of our favorite songs on the CD is performed below, “Free Me” by Joss Stone. The lyrics speak to breaking barriers and could just as well be part of a She’s the First soundtrack:
“Don’t tell me that I won’t
Don’t tell me that I’m not
Don’t tell me that my master plan
Ain’t coming true (yeah!)”
Which song from the CD — or which song on your own playlist — most inspires you to achieve your goals?
