The Ultimate Feminist Summer Mixtape

503442714_bb761f6337It’s officially summer! In the spirit of the season, we would like to kick off with a feel-good mixtape of feminist summer hits to help you celebrate (or escape) the inevitable sizzle.

Whether you’re beach-bound and driving along with some grrrl rock jams, having a dance party under the stars to dreamy neo-soul, or looking to cool down in the shade while being serenaded by the chilling vocals of rapper Ana Tijoux, there’s a little something for everyone and every occasion here on the Ultimate Feminist Summer Mixtape.

Hand-picked and sequenced just for you, each of the featured artists has either identified as a feminist or spoken out about sexism in the music industry. Pop icons and underground cult legends alike are all here and all have something to say on one super Feminist Mixtape.

Oh, and don’t worry, Queen Bey makes an appearance as well.
