Morning Song – Strut
If you want to argue that Sheena Easton’s gold lame’ miniskirt undermines the feminist credibility of her 1984 hit, “Strut”, I won’t argue*.
But 1984 wasn’t exactly a peak cultural moment for the feminist movement in the US of A. Which makes Easton’s tight, slickly produced, irresistibly danceable evisceration of casual sexism “(“Baby, what’s wrong with you… It’s just a form of appreciation“) all the more remarkable.
*I will, however, point out the counterargument: it doesn’t matter what she wears; it’s still her body.
