This Is The Feminist Anthem We've Been Waiting For All Year — And It's So Worth It

Who knew Hillary Clinton could sing like that?

There may still be a few days left this year, but Trevor Noah and the rest of the Daily Show team brought everything to a close last night with a hilarious hour-long "Yearly Show" special. While the whole show was great, it was two correspondents — Dulcé Sloan and Desi Lydic — who gifted us with a feminist anthem that perfectly encapsulates what women have gone through in 2017.


Sloan and Lydic came together to put their musical chops to the test with "Song For Women 2017," a song that touched on all of the highs and lows for the female gender these past 12 months. From the epic Women's March to the downfall of powerful men who have been accused of sexual misconduct across multiple industries.

While there was plenty to be deemed horrible for women in 2017, the two correspondents-turned-singers agreed on some ladies who made their mark this year: the fabulous Beyoncé, the breakout star Cardi B, the ever-persistent Elizabeth Warren, the #MeToo activists (such as actress-activist Rose McGowan and Tarana Burke, who founded the movement), and the inspiring Wonder Woman film (and its director, Patty Jenkins). Even though it has been a trying year, there are some bright spots.

Aside from Sloan and Lydic spitting their lines, there were a few special guests. First was a superstar cameo from Hillary Clinton — you know, the first woman to ever win the popular vote in a U.S. presidential election. Then there was "DJ Mansplain" (aka fellow Daily Show correspondent Michael Kosta) who rapped a bit before Sloan and Lydic shut it down and took back control.

Is it too late for this song — and, more importantly, these women — to be nominated for a Grammy?
