Song Of The Day: My Body (Stand Up)

Think what you want of insurance companies, but an insurance company designed for women? That sounds all right. South African based 1st For Women Insurance has produced a new song featuring LIRA, GOODLUCK, Gigi Lamayne and Mariechan.

In the music video women of all ages dance and raise their fists in the air while a choir of young women sing “my body’s nobody’s body but mine, you run your own body let me run mine” under a beat that fits perfectly for such a protest anthem.

“Stand up let the whole world see
That we not gonna sit and take it quietly
Stand up and let the whole world know:
If you raise a hand to one you raise a hand to us all”
