For a long time, women have been caricatured as hysteric beings embodying emotions in extreme. But unfortunately, only a few attempts have been made to understand her as a being with distinct psychological and emotional setup. Limiting women under certain “types” has led to their subjugation, a consequence that had reduced them as tools to be used by patriarchy to demonstrate its rules and conventions.
But fortunately, the tables are being turned.We are living the times where women, who were once deemed “second sex”, are coming to the fore and snatching away their rights (literally).
But we have only talked about social change. We need to keep in mind that until and unless we realize that we are self-sufficient and can’t be trampled upon in both our social as well as personal sphere, we won’t be able to materialize the movement.
APHROSE has already taken a step in this direction.
Who is APHROSE?
APHROSE aka Joanna Mohammed is an indie-soul artist whose musical taste is as varied as her upbringing. Influenced by traditional musical styles including Soca, Calypso, Reggae and Bollywood, APHROSE has been producing music that would find its place in each of its listener’s heart. Her first single “The Middle” was well received by the audience and the critics which make the effect of her work pretty evident.
Move On – A Liberating Anthem for Womenfolk
The Canadian born singer has recently released a liberating single titled “Move On”. The music video is as powerful as the lyrics and singer’s smooth voice adds impact to the single. Marching with 20 women of different backgrounds, each carrying her own narrative, the singer has made a strong point. No matter where we are and where we come from, we all have to fight for our rights as well the rights of others like us.
The reason why “Move On” is just not a love song but an anthem of liberation. Talking about her single, APHROSE said,
‘It is not your average love song about relationships between two people, but rather about the love a person finds when they realize their own self-worth. Move On is that feeling you get when you finally become aware that you’ve had enough of barriers like hate and fear and you’re not going to let those walls hold you back anymore.’
