While Meghan Trainor’s hit “All About That Bass” celebrates body confidence, a new feminist parody takes more of an intellectual approach to equality.
Created by three Columbia Business School students, “Bitch In Business” puts a feminist manifesto to the tune of Trainor’s “All About That Bass.” The students, who are part of a group called the CBS Follies, describe the video as “a love letter to all the badass bitches who aren’t afraid to be themselves in the business world.”
The video itself is a bit sharper than Trainor’s pastel-filled, hip-shaking video, and even includes a few slightly NSFW lines, such as: “You say ‘Babies are for girls! Business is for boys!’/Try telling THAT to my stay-at-home fuck toy.” Other amazing one-liners include, “Making these suits look good while I close the wage gap,” and “Gettin’ called bitch means I’m doing something right.” Preach.
It’s no secret that sexism is alive and well in the business world (along with many,many other industries). If a woman is viewed as too “abrasive” or too “pushy” she runs the risk of being labelled a bitch, but those same qualities in a man might brand himas a strong leader. Everyday sexism at its finest.
We still suggest you play this before any and every upcoming interview.
