Happy International Women's Day!

Take a listen to "Woman is the nigger of the world" here:

It's a cover song by Ben Lee as a tribute to John Lennon, Yoko Onno and the women in the world who are still fighting for equal rights and respect in their daily lives.

Every year, 8th of March is International Women’s Day and on this day, thousands of events are held to celebrate the achievements of women and to inspire the world for fairness and goodwill.

John and Yoko explain the song here:

John Lennon reads a quote by Ron Dellums (Co-Founder and Chairman of The Congressional Black Caucus. US Congressman 1971-1998):

“If you define niggers as someone whose lifestyle is defined by others, whose opportunities are defined by others, whose roles in society are defined by others, then good news! — you don’t have to be black to be a nigger.“

Support, respect and love.
