Listen to Lowey’s Spotify Playlist for Women’s History Month

WASHINGTON, DC – Congresswoman Nita Lowey (D-NY17/Rockland-Westchester), in honor of Women’s History Month, released her first-ever Spotify playlist this International Women’s Day, March 8. From classics like Carole King’s “I Feel the Earth Move” and Aretha Franklin’s “Respect,” to modern hits from Andra Day and Demi Lovato, the Congresswoman’s playlist is comprised of some of her favorite songs and music that empowers and inspires.

“No matter the genre or decade, women artists have used the power of their music to give voice to their experiences, to motivate and inspire, to stir the social conscience, and to fight for the dignity and equality we all deserve,” said Congresswoman Lowey. “In many cases, their songs have become a soundtrack of resistance and strength, a vehicle to empower and challenge the status quo, and an important reminder: we fight back.”

Additions to Congresswoman Lowey’s playlist will come throughout the month.

Lowey is the Ranking Member on the powerful House Appropriations Committee. She is the first woman of either party to hold the position.
