The norm has been for girls to be raised to be nice, make people happy, disregard your ambitions and joys.
Little Big Town’s Fairchild sings a different tune, literally in this piece showing girls that they can reject the 1950’s social rules. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aPfHdJyd_IE
Thanks to Little Big Town and Youtube for the video
It is 2020 and girls can do and be anything they want and parents do not have to introduce their toddlers to princesses and shining knights.
Parents can show them truck drivers, medical doctors and dentists. They can introduce them to female astronauts and a myriad of other careers previously forbidden to girls.
Let’s get behind Little Big Town and “The Daughters” by sharing this clip, sharing your opinion and be a driving force for girls to choose their own destiny.
Let’s stop telling little girls they must wear their hair in a particular fashion to look pretty.
Let’s scrap the idea that girls need to dress a certain way to avoid boys getting the “wrong idea”.
Let’s avoid modeling subservient behavior that our daughters believe they must live under the control of a man.
Let’s not teach our girls that their lives don’t matter compared to that of a man’s.
Let’s stop preparing our girls to be victims of sexual and domestic assaults.
Let’s teach our girls to be bad asses and take the world by storm and be anything they want to be and to be strong enough to reject criticism.
Let’s stop asking five year old girls, “Do you have a boyfriend?”
Let’s raise smart, independent girls.
Little Big Town has received criticism for their lyrics which suggests we reject the 1950’s social norms. https://www.ctvnews.ca/entertainment/little-big-town-strike-a-nerve-with-grammy-nominated-song-1.4768843?cid=sm%3Atrueanthem%3Actvnews%3Apost&utm_campaign=trueAnthem%3A+Trending+Content&utm_medium=trueAnthem&utm_source=facebook&fbclid=IwAR0JYwsm4JOcz-R0eo2_gXPPQs5LW1MFa5OChg4j4YzlspQKbweTdZO1d9o
“The song, which they debuted at the Academy of Country Music Awards last April, features a chorus with the lyrics, “I’ve heard of God the son and God the father/I’m still looking for a God for the daughters.”
