Ultimate girl power anthem: ‘Girls Just Want to Have Fun’ or 'Man! I Feel Like a Woman!'?
#TeamCyndiLauper

For the past several decades—female artists have declared their independence, dismantled double standards and empowered women with their music. Enter the "Girl Power Anthem." What better way to celebrate Women's History Month than to honor the women in music who influenced feminist movements, and ultimately pick the greatest girl power anthem of all time.

Destiny's Child's "Independent Women Part 1," Madonna's "Express Yourself," Whitney Houston's "I'm Every Woman," and Christina Aguilera's "Can't Hold Us Down" were all eliminated in round one. Now, it's Spice Girls versus Beyoncé, and Cyndi Lauper versus Shania Twain in the second round.

Cyndi's "Girls Just Want to Have Fun" is pretty self-explanatory. Girls are always told how to act, and Lauper clapped back, arguing women should have the freedom to express themselves and have some fun too!

Below are some notable lyrics "Girls Just Want to Have Fun," per Genius.

🎶I come home in the morning light. My mother says when you gonna live your life right. Oh mother dear we're not the fortunate ones. And girls they want to have fun. Oh girls just want to have fun. The phone rings in the middle of the night. My father yells what you gonna do with your life. Oh daddy dear you know you're still number one. But girls they want to have fun. Oh girls just want to have.🎶

Shania wasn't shy about being feminine and being a powerful woman all in one. It's the basis of her iconic smash "Man! I Feel Like a Woman!"

Below are some significant lyrics to "Man! I Feel Like a Woman!," per Genius.

🎶Let's go girls! Come on.🎶
🎶I'm going out tonight. I'm feelin' alright. Gonna let it all hang out. Wanna make some noise-really raise my voice. Yeah, I wanna scream and shout. No inhibitions-make no conditions. Get a little outta line. I ain't gonna act politically correct. I only wanna have a good time.🎶
🎶The best thing about being a woman. Is the prerogative to have a little fun.🎶
