My song today is ‘I Feel Like A Woman’. This song was recorded by Canadian singer-songwriter Shania Twain and was taken from her third studio album, ‘Come on Over’ (1997). It was even more successful on the ‘Hot Country Songs’ chart, reaching the top-five, and was certified Platinum by the RIAA for 1,000,000 digital downloads.
This is probably one of the most upbeat songs I have come across over the past 23 years and is definitely one of the few ‘country’ songs that celebrate ‘womanhood’ instead of recounting the sad emotions of women who have been dumped, ditched, depressed, deserted or divorced by men in their life.
I love all country and western songs, mostly because they tell a story which is poignant to the condition of all men and women’s lives, losses, and loves. However, I find the experience extremely nice to come across this song that is entirely upbeat and positive about ‘womanhood’. This song represents what I call ‘Women’s Lib in Action’.
