The song regards the wage gap and the video highlights real-life women at their jobs all over Baltimore, including Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake and performer Rain Pryor. The video is a direct protest to the ways women are normally portrayed in music videos according to frontwoman Shawna Potter.
About the album:
Featuring 11 tracks, War On Women’s self-titled full-length debut on Bridge Nine Records was recorded with J. Robbins at the Magpie Cage (Against Me!, Coliseum, Lemuria). These new tracks are a natural progression for the band and a little more polished than their previous efforts, while remaining as blistering as ever. Vocalist Shawna Potter has “…plenty of material to pull from when it comes to writing lyrics, considering the pervasive sexism in modern America,” she commented.
