Respect, A Musical Celebration of Women
There’s a lot to learn from American Top 40 hits—especially if you start your study way back in 1900. Such was the method of Columbia University professor Dorothy Marcic, whose nonfiction book, Respect: Women in Popular Music, traces the female influence on the ears of a nation. Marcic’s book, in turn, takes its title from the soul single that became a women’s empowerment anthem after it met Aretha Franklin’s pipes. In celebrating the strength and joy of American women and female artists, Respect effortlessly inspires audiences to bob their heads and stamp their feet. What’s more, each number in the program’s century-long survey highlights the cultural power—as well as the show-stopping, note-belting, chill-causing dynamism—of women in pop music.
