Little Mix have penned a track about the #MeToo movement.
The girl group wrote female empowerment anthem ‘Woman’s World’ – which will feature on their upcoming album – as a direct response to the scandal surrounding Hollywood.
Jade Thirlwall said: “So we wrote this song when the whole #MeToo movement was coming about. You know … I was so angry about what was going on. It was important to write it with [producer Jez Ashurst], who’s a man. It holds an important message.”
And the 25-year-old singer says the girl group haven’t written anything “that’s too controversial” yet but are starting to be increasingly “more honest” in their songs.
She added: “We haven’t written anything that’s too controversial before, and now we’re starting to write things that are slightly more honest. We want to be a bit more ballsy and say, ‘yeah, it is hard to be a woman.'”
The ‘Little Me’ singers have been working hard to educate themselves about women’s rights, LGBTQ issues and the Black Lives Matter campaign so they can write and speak about them from an “educated” background.
Jade told Vice magazine’s Noisey website: “We were scared to say the wrong thing, basically. We didn’t want to talk about something if we felt we weren’t truly educated in it. But there’s a change that comes with age, and also learning more about what’s going on in the world. I think we’re all doing that more in general, about the things we’re passionate about – whether it’s women’s rights, LGBTQ issues or Black Lives Matter.”
