Top 25 Empowering Songs for Women

Music gets your Visionista Mojo going. What songs inspire you to conquer the world? Here's my top 25!


Every Visionista needs a theme song!


Music empowers, inspires, motivates and gets our creative energy flowing. A feeling that you can conquer the world comes over you as you turn up the volume, open the car window and let your hair blow free in the wind. We put it on replay when we need it most (even if it’s just playing in our mind) – an important meeting with a client, a presentation in front of a crowd or entering a room of strangers at a networking event. Music gets our mojo going. Just watch any YouTube video of a baby intuitively moving to the beat. It’s proof that rockin’ out to our theme song is in our DNA.


Helen Reddy had never written a song before when she penned I Am Woman in 1971. She set an intention to write an anthem that would inspire women and woke up with the lyrics in her head. The song is a fond memory for my sister and I. When we got our “period”, becoming women, our mother opened the stereo, took out her Helen Reddy album and blasted the song throughout the house. As a teenager we didn’t know whether we should laugh, cry, hide or just roll our eyes. Looking back as the mother of two daughters, I can reflect on the message my mom was sending to us. She wanted us to know we were women, we were strong and we could do anything.


Not only did I Am Woman become an empowering anthem for women’s rights in the 1970’s, it stood the test of time. In 2010, when Kathryn Bigelow became the first woman to win the Oscar for Best Director (The Hurt Locker), the orchestra played I Am Woman as she exited the stage.


Many great songs have been written since Helen Reddy set an intention, tuned in to inspiration and led the way for women’s empowerment. Katy Perry’s Firework is a song that’s on frequent replay in my mind when I need to get my Million $ Party Girl on. Here’s my list of 25 empowering songs that will leave “the doubter”, and any limiting beliefs, at the door.
