"Woman" by 1/2-E featuring... ME!

Today you all get a little information about my life; I've been married for three years (as of yesterday) and my husband is a hip hop artist. He released an album last year and today we released the music video to one of his songs. So, what does that have to do with feminism and my blog? Well, the song is called Woman and it's about domestic violence. Henry, my husband wrote the song as if he is the woman in an abusive relationship. It's meant to be a statement about the overwhelming amount of violence toward women in our society and the fact that men don't often think about how it must feel to be in a situation like that.

Anyway, if you can handle some explicit lyrics, the message is pretty amazing and it certainly will make you think. Also, the chorus, yeah I sang it :)

Here it is, without further introduction: Woman!
