about

"See This Fight As One" was written in response to the #Metoo movement. It was inspired by the words of a Suffragette named Mary Theadora Mills. As a member of the National Union of Women's Suffrage Societies in Cheltenham England in the early 1900's, Mills composed many propaganda songs for the Suffragist Movement. The first and last verse of "See This Fight As One" quote her song titled "The Women's Battle Song." The melody, chorus, body percussion, and other verses of "See This Fight As One" were composed by Natalie Spears.

ALL PROCEEDS FROM THIS SONG WILL BE DONATED TO RESPONSE, AN ORGANIZATION BASED IN THE ROARING FORK VALLEY (COLORADO) THAT WORKS TO END DOMESTIC AND SEXUAL ABUSE AND STRIVES TO SUPPORT SURVIVORS IN ACHIEVING SAFETY AND EMPOWERMENT. RESPONSE ALSO PROVIDES EDUCATION ABOUT CONSENT AND HEALTHY RELATIONSHIPS IN THE LOCAL SCHOOLS.

lyrics

Forward sister women, onward ever more
Bondage is behind you, and freedom is before
Raise the standard boldly, in the morning sun
A great injustice, see this fight begun

Metoo....

In an age of modern women, the truth has come to light
Our dirty handed nation, hiding lies from sight
We sing to break the silence, our chorus we hold strong
Our scars they will not stop us, we seek to right these wrongs

Metoo....

Our common blood unites us, with women of the past
Their stories we will tell, a phoenix from the ash
We march for the daughters, our bodies we reclaim
You cannot hold us down, with hateful words of shame

Metoo....

OOOO
AHHH

Forward sister women, onward ever more
Bondage is behind you, and freedom is before
Raise the standard boldly, in the morning sun
A great injustice, see this fight as one

We Too....
