Here, in this body, I am woman to my soul
With hips and breasts and belly that you try to control
But the more you constrain me with your laws across the land
The harder I will push back, the stronger I will stand

I am a woman
and I have these rights
We are women
and we have these rights
We are human
and we have these rights
Enough is enough!

You try to divide us, the straight from the queer
The ones who have the papers, from the ones not born here
But we will not be taken by your hatred and spite
We see beyond your smokescreen, we’re united for the fight

The right to freedom,
we have these rights
The right to safety,
we have these rights
To self expression,
we have these rights
To our own bodies,
we have these rights
To make decisions,
we have these rights
To have our voice,
we have these rights
To join together,
we have these rights
And vote for choice!

So listen to the sisters, answer to the wives
Heed your granddaughters, all the women in your lives
You will not use our bodies as a way to get ahead
Not this election year, not ever. Remember what your momma said
