With strong lyrics like It’s time we learned how to fight, ’cause lines are blurred and our voices go unheard, I take no pride, ’cause fighting like a lady means fighting for my life, “Ladylike” is sure to become an empowering anthem among Stevie Rae fans.
“The concept of being ladylike is a societal construct that conditions women to be fragile, polite, and restrained,” Stevie Rae explains. “We are taught as children to use our words, avoid conflict, and that commanding, outspoken character traits are less desirable – less ladylike. So what happens when ‘No’ isn’t enough? When our words don’t work? When a lifetime of being ladylike leaves us unprepared to fight back? We have been patient and polite in the face of disrespect long enough. It’s time to reclaim this word and encourage women to be powerful, fierce, and confident.”
“Ladylike” is the second of four singles Stevie Rae will be releasing, preceding three EPs, Ladylike, Daydreams and Cruel Love. These will ultimately make up her upcoming album, “Ladylike,” set to be released in Fall 2019.
Inspired by pop icons like Katy Perry, Lady Gaga and Sara Bareilles, Stevie Rae also has deep roots in theater and composition. She is currently directing a production of The Vagina Monologues, which will take place on February 17 & 18 at Nashville’s famous Exit/In. Tickets can be purchased HERE.
