Last weekend, women’s marches literally took over the world. For one entire weekend, it felt like if we rallied enough, we’d be able to hurl an entire planet into the sun if that’s what they wanted. The calls to action in the days that followed didn’t seem so overwhelming with that in the rearview, and if the current state of affairs are going to keep steamrolling along as they indeed seem to be, I need another weekend to recharge.
So, I made a playlist to surround myself with the girl groups of today and yesteryear because there’s power in numbers, because there’s authority in the things people consider frivolous, and because there are few things that make me feel prouder of the women in my life than hearing them singing every word to a Danity Kane song. I’m going to listen to this playlist that 100% has a Pussycat Dolls song on it on repeat until I feel like the blood in my body has healing powers, only stopping for the hour and a half when Lifetime airs Love By the 10th Date (I exclusively watch Lifetime now) starring – somehow, impossibly – Meagan Good, Keri Hilson, and Kelly Rowland. Fairytales do come true they can happen to you.
