Feminist Videos: John Legend; Jenny Lewis

John Legend, “You and I”

Legend embraces all types of women from young to old. They’re looking at themselves in the mirror. At their imperfections, scars and wounds in this beautiful video that features his wife Chrissy Teigen as well as Orange is the New Black star Laverne Cox. In the video it’s showing that every woman is beautiful as Legend croons: “If your mirror won’t make it any clearer, I’ll be the one to let you know. Out of all of the girls, you’re my one and only girl. aint nobody in the world tonight.” I’ve never paid much attention to John Legend but the more songs I hear from his latest album, the more impressed I am with his songwriting talent.

John Legend said this about feminism: “All men should be feminists. If men care about women’s rights the world will be a better place.”

Jenny Lewis, “Just One of the Guys”

Jenny Lewis has Kristen Stewart, Anne Hathaway and Brie Larson in her backing band and dressing in drag for this video. The song isn’t lyrically ground-breaking. it’s a catchy ditty about being yourself. a solid feminist message. And seeing these women having fun in drag is worth it.
