New music: Icelandic pop artist Hildur releases empowering new single ‘Woman At War’ today

“Woman in War is a song to honour all the strong women I know that have fought many battles and are tired. Tired of always having to put up a fight, tired of putting in all the efforts but not seeing the situation change, tired of having to fight the same fight again and again, tired of being labelled angry when they really are just fighting for equal rights.

It conveys understanding that this is what the situation looks like right now and it’s ok to be overwhelmed by it and want to give up at times. Because the beautiful thing is that all the woman I know that have hit this wall, me included, they somehow find the strength in them to continue and return fighting strong, again.
