"You're born into this world as a boy or a thing"
Galway guitar-pop band Dott have released a new track 'Like a Girl' and video showcasing the efforts of women to reclaim their reproductive rights ahead of the referendum to repeal the Eighth Amendment on May 25.
The song comes from Dott's eagerly awaited second album 'Heart Swell' which will be released on June 8.
On the release they said,
"It has always bothered me when people say that doing something ‘like a girl’ means that they did it weakly or sub-standardly. To put this outdated notion to bed, I wrote this song to remind people that doing something ‘like a girl’ means it will be powerful and no shit will be taken."
"It’s especially relevant in Ireland at the moment with the fast approaching Referendum on Reproductive Rights (voting on May 25th). Irish women and girls have spent years fighting for reproductive rights, demanding a referendum to change archaic and unsafe Irish Law. And now we are a matter of weeks away from the referendum finally happening, all because of the fierce and tireless work of the women’s groups of Ireland."
