YOU DON’T OWN ME
“…Please, when I go out with you,
don’t put me on display...”
Unleashed in 1963, Lesley Gore's recording of "You Don't Own Me" was a radical shift in pop music themes. Most songs performed by female soloists dealt with love , devotion and heartbreak. Gore's single depicted a strong and defiant woman. The lyrics make it clear that the protagonist isn't changing for any man. She also declared that this woman is no man's chattel.
