      You know the song is nice but don’t you wish that the money had gone into something, I don’t know, tangible or real. There is such a long way to go especially in the Global South we stand in solidarity with those women – where feminism is a very, very real thing, people in the west might think that feminism has already achieved its aims (which we haven’t) – and of course we have had a large measure of success – but our sisters in the south have to deal with the very real oppression, exploitation, physical harm and sadly sometimes death on a daily basis – feminism for them is everything and we cannot forget that.
