Consider the journey of social change that women have taken over the years: achieving the right to vote, to own property, to receive equal pay for equal work, to have equal access to professional opportunities, and to claim equal protections under the law, among many other changes—some of which continue to be ongoing efforts. Women could not have achieved these accomplishments without a social change vision.
Starting this week and continuing throughout the course, you begin to make connections between women’s writing and social change. Walden University defines positive social change as a deliberate process of creating and applying ideas, strategies, and actions to promote the worth, dignity, and development of individuals, communities, organizations, institutions, cultures, and societies. Whether direct or indirect, the authors presented in this course each had or have a goal. Although they represent different generations and different outward focus, they share many similarities and, perhaps unknowingly, support the same mission of improving or advancing the experience of women’s lives.
In this Discussion, you will focus on social change and song. While songs are often written simply to entertain, songwriters also write songs to teach a lesson, support a cause, oppose a political idea, or raise awareness about an issue. Essentially, a song can embody a social change theme.
Song lyrics are a form of poetry set to music. You might not realize that what makes a song memorable or moving to you are the literary techniques the songwriter uses to convey her ideas.
In this Discussion, you work with song lyrics of your choosing—either from the list in this week’s Learning Resources or of your own selection—that represent social change as it relates to women in general. As you select a song, it is important to remember to focus on the written words in the song and not the sound of the music that accompanies it.
To prepare for this Discussion:
With these thoughts in mind:
Post by Day 3 a 2- to 3-paragraph claim about how a particular song is an example of women voicing social change, and provide evidence to support this claim. Include in your posting whether any themes communicated in the works of Ensler and Stanton and Mott are reflected in the song lyrics and how they are reflected—whenever they were written. In addition, identify the use of two literary techniques reflected in the song lyrics.
