I made this playlist because of Santigold's GIRLS (hence the title of the mix) and it then made me explore and go through songs by some of my favourite womenfolk and their experiences. It's basically everything about being a girl -- from feeling empowered and like you can take over the world to feeling vulnerable, heartbroken or to being painfully smitten to loving yourself and just overall having POSI VIBEZ. It's great to highlight and to promote a sense of independence towards young girls but I also want to highlight the fact that we're still learning and growing up and we're still trying to find ourselves and it's inevitable to make mistakes because that is a part of the process of life.
My apologies if this is a bit too deep of an explanation for a ~~*playlist*~~ but I just wanted to make the whole point clear. ALRIGHT NOW, ENJOY!!
