In the ’90s, Gwen Stefani of No Doubt sung her syrupy sweet punkish-anthem “Just A Girl” with a kind of femininity missing in an era of Lilith Fair and riot grrrrls.

It was exactly what was needed to spawn a whole entire generation of women who spoke up against gender stereotypes, embracing their girlish natures, but also verbalizing their disdain of being treated like objects: “Take this pink ribbon off my eyes /I’m exposed /And it’s no big surprise /Don’t you think I know /Exactly where I stand /This world is forcing me /To hold your hand.”
