Look at virtually every single feminist anthem. “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” was written by Robert Hazard. The song “Girls’ Night Out” was written by Brian Allen. Beyoncé is regularly mocked for having men write her songs, most recently by Linda Perry, a very prolific songwriter in her own right who is also a lesbian. We’re told “I am Woman” (the “hear me roar” song) was written by Helen Reddy and Ray Burton, but I’m guessing Reddy’s credit was a favor. She didn’t really write anything before or after that, but Ray Burton’s churned out dozens of songs. They did the same “cowriter” trick with “Redneck Woman”—penned by the incredibly prolific John Rich—and “Man! I Feel Like a Woman!” by Robert John “Mutt” Lange.
