Huntsville Feminist Chorus to Hold Winter Solstice Concert

From the Go Section of today's Huntsville Times:
The Huntsville Feminist Chorus will present its annual Winter Solstice Concert on Sunday at 7:30 PM in the Von Braun Center Playhouse, 700 Monroe St., featuring songs, poems and dance from a diversity of cultures and ethnic traditions and celebrating the rhythms of the earth. It's free.

The Huntsville Feminist Chorus is an a capella chorus specializing in "songs that empower women." As you would guess, the "free" concert is not really free - it is supported by the Women's Studies Department at the University of Alabama in Huntsville.

Since I have close connections to the local feminist community, I was forwarded a sneak preview of one of Sunday night's featured songs. Here are they lyrics, sung to the tune of Hark! The Herald Angels Sing.

Hark! The Feminists Will Sing

Hark! The feminists will sing
"Don't tell us to praise a king"!

We're diverse, and that's our style.
You don't like it? Then you're vile.

We will triumph o'er the guys -
Crush them 'neath our mighty thighs.

We are women! Hear us roar!
Tremble, ye, at what's in store!

Hark! The feminists do sing
Take a queen to be your king!
