Ace of Wands: Feminine Values – video of the day

Today’s video of the day is ‘Feminine Values’ by Toronto’s Ace of Wands.

Frontwoman Lee Rose has this to say about the song’s themes of self-discovery and womanhood:

Is it easier for me to endure the pain of female repression and remain quiet, or challenge the status quo? Is it easier to acquiesce to a phallocentric definition of womanhood, or face the pain of discovering my own?

I resist. I resist the constraints of the male gaze. I resist the objectification of female bodies. I celebrate and honour what is true for me in each and every way those truths appear – in rage, in grief, in sadness, in joy.
