International Women’s Day has a powerful energy fueled by the inherent inclusion, unity, and diversity of the holiday. It’s inspiring to see celebrations and activism around the world and know that you’re part of an international sisterhood of women that is driven to achieve equality. So to commemorate International Women’s Day (and any other day you feel like being inspired), here are seven songs that pay tribute to women who made a difference, highlight some of the struggles women still face, or simply display general badassery and a can-do attitude:

Q.U.E.E.N. by Janelle Monáe featuring Erykah Badu

Got the Hunger by Alice Russell remixed by DJ Vadim

Endangered Species by Dianne Reeves

Bad Girls by M.I.A.

Hot Topic by Le Tigre

Revolution by Iyeoka Okoawo

We Are Family by Sister Sledge
