Ani's new single "Play God" is now available for download today on any of your favorite digital music outlets including right here in the Righteous Babe Store.
"'Play God' is a song that recognizes reproductive freedom as a civil rights issue. As a society, it is time to acknowledge that unless a woman is in control of her own reproduction, she is not free, and it is the responsibility of our American government to protect and ensure the freedom of all American citizens. It is time we get serious about addressing and achieving this great unfinished business of civil rights in America. The true emancipation and equality of women is dependent on it." - Ani
The Huffington Post premiered the official video for "Play God" today saying "In usual DiFranco fashion, the song blends her folk-rock voice with a fight for women’s equality ― and it does not disappoint." Watch it here:
