Nancy Sinatra - "These Boots Are Made For Walkin'"
Women standing up to their men, not by them.
When Nancy Sinatra stepped out from her father Frank’s shadow, she sure wasn’t wearing ballet slippers. The impression that this bouncy, bass-heavy bit of mod 1966 pop made on the public consciousness was lasting, as the daughter of the most famous singer of the 20th century stood her ground in a song that firmly asserted no one would be stepping on her, figuratively or literally. Sexy and swaggering, it stands as an uncompromisingly defiant pre-feminist manifesto.
