Pick of the Day: Do Re #MeToo: Sexist Songs Reclaimed by Righteous Feminists 9/17
It should be no secret that some of the most popular songs, the ones that people hum until they sing the part of the chorus that they remember, further affirm the patriarchy and limit women to traditional gender roles and expectations in subtle and very not so subtle sexist ways.
Do Re #MeToo is a special evening, presented by Abortion Access Front (AAF), that combines comedy and music to highlight how truly toxically masculine some of music’s hits/bangers/etc. are.
Slated to perform thus far are:
Margaret Cho, Peppermint (RuPaul’s Drag Race, Broadway’s Head Over Heels), Tony Winner Laura Benanti (Gypsy, Into the Woods), Kathy Valentine (The Go-Go’s), Veruca Salt, Bethany Thomas, Laura Jane Grace (Against Me!), Ambrosia Parsley, Holly Miranda, and Jackie Venson.
Lizz Winstead, AAF founder and co-creator of The Daily Show, is set to host and the marvelous Michelle Buteau is set to be a virtual bar tender.
Do Re #MeToo will stream via Crowdcast on Thurs. Sept. 17th at 6PM PT/9PM ET. Admission is pay what you can! Go get your tickets right now right here.
