A new documentary, Served Like a Girl, offers a powerful look at what it’s like to serve in the U.S. armed forces as a woman, and the ongoing struggles involved in coming home, whether it be suffering from PTSD, falling into homelessness, or being denied certain veteran benefits. To honor the strong women who have served, some of the coolest women in music collaborated for the soundtrack.
Christina Aguilera, Gwen Stefani, P!nk, Little Mix, Lizzo, Lykke Li, Pat Benatar, and Natasha Bedingfield are just some of those contributing new music to the album, which was co-written and produced by rock legend Linda Perry. The songs carry themes of strength, resilience, and female empowerment. Bedingfield’s opening track, “Hey Boy,” for example, challenges entitled men and even explicitly calls out Donald Trump and Harvey Weinstein in the music video (which she filmed while pregnant).
The soundtrack officially releases tomorrow, November 3, but you can get an early listen right now. All proceeds from the soundtrack will benefit the charity Final Salute, which supports homeless female veterans.
