Today, we're introducing you to Mix #53. March 8 is recognized as International Women's Day, and as a result, Gravyty thinks it is only right to pay homage to the women that have inspired millions in the music industry for this week's fundraiser productivity power hour.
Our power hour highlights the work of female artists who embraced the challenge they face and owned their status in the world. Topics have included addressing traditional gender roles like Ms. Lauryn Hill's Doo Wop, regaining your confidence and pride with Lizzo's Good As Hell, or even just a good old-fashioned breakup song like It's Too Late or You're so Vain.
The future is female because of the women through history who rose to the top and embraced themselves and their identity.
We hope this list will motivate you for the next hour to help you do the best work of your life.

Did you miss last week's playlist? Don't worry - we've got you covered! Check out last week's Spotify mix: I Wonder What Day It Is. Last week was the celebration of Ash Wednesday. Naturally, our playlist featured songs that were named after the holiday with some related to the tradition and others being more metaphorical.
