SONG PICK: Samantha Margaret – Feminist gf
The future is female and faking support for feminist causes will not save patriarchalism. That is the message singer, songwriter and producer Samantha Margret has for a particular annoying type of man. There is a good dose of menace in way the song builds: she knows that she will win, but it is not going to be easy. Samantha recalls the inspiration for “Feminist gf”:
After the call, I was mad at him; I was mad at myself,” Margret explains. “Sometimes it cuts deeper when that kind of patriarchal hurt comes from someone you think is on your team. I think of myself as really outspoken and try to be the first to speak up when another woman is in trouble, but I sometimes have trouble when the comments are directed at me.
