A Women’s March video premiered on Huffington Post which you can watch and read about here. The video features footage from the Washington DC, New York City, Los Angeles, and Austin Women’s Marches. I would love if you could help spread the message of female empowerment to your followers with this video: https://goo.gl/I9wbDU
Although many females are saddened by the outcome of this past presidential election, it is with great hope that this video can spread a little positivity and furthermore knowledge regarding the strength of women in the country.
The video features music from artist Emily Bell (“Girls That Never Die”), and below is a personal message from her regarding the video and song choice.
My name is Emily Bell. I am a rock and roll singer and songwriter from Austin, Texas. I recorded my recently released record, Kali, over a year ago with one goal in mind- empowerment.
Throughout the election I was very active and was excited to be releasing a record so focused on female empowerment into the world at the same time we would have our first female president. Obviously, that turned out to not be the case. So, like millions of other people, I marched the day after the inauguration with my mother. There are no words I have to express the respect and gratitude I have for the women who took charge and organized it. January 2017 will be remembered for when we made our voices heard and united millions of people in continued activism.
One song off my record is called “Girls That Never Die,” it’s about the power of protest and the fighting spirit of women that has existed throughout time. I partnered with my dear friend and film editor, Jess Miller, and reached out to filmmakers across the states that had taken amazing footage of the Women’s March and created a music video for the song. I wanted to juxtapose the Women’s March with female protests throughout time. We used stock footage and created a timeline, and we interviewed women at the march and put their words for young women today in the video as well.
I’m thrilled with the way it came out and I wanted you guys to be the first to see it and give you the opportunity to put it out first if you would like. This is not a video for me, it is a video for you and for everyone. Thank you for your work and I hope you enjoy!
