‘You Don’t Own Me’, a powerful song by Lesley Gore and a suitable antidote to the domestic violence justifying ‘Delilah’

imageYesterday I posted an item saying that it was time for Tom Jones to stop performing Delilah, a song that attempts to justify domestic homicide. I suggested that nobody would continue to perform a song that attempted to justify the lynching of black people.

As it is a Saturday, I though I would post a link to a powerful song that was ahead of its time, performed in 1963 by Lesley Gore, You Don’r Own Me. I feel it is a suitable antidote to Delilah.
