Raye Zaragoza – Fight Like A Girl
If you are a woman, what should the world’s expectation for you be? What should they think you are capable of? The answer is anything and everything and Raye Zaragoza plants that message firmly in the new and delightful folk-pop single, Fight Like A Girl (seen/heard here). The video samples video and stills of women demonstrating their abilities to do what is needed and is a rock-solid statement of new feminist activism in an age of resurgent oppression. The message is loud and clear: Women are every bit as capable as men.
Zaragoza (pronounced zay-rah-GO-zah) is a wonderful folk artist, with a couple of EP’s and a long-player under her belt. Her long-player, Fight For You, has a wonderful lead-off track called American Dream which has this great bit of sentiment that should, quite frankly, be required listening for all Americans and anyone in any country whose politicians and people continue basing their policies and actions on hate. The lyric
“Hate can’t be the face of the American dream”
is such a powerful refrain and such a timely message for those who need it right now. With Fight Like A Girl, Raye Zaragoza adds another bright spot to a catalog of beautiful songs and poignant lyrics from a modern-day folk master.
