    We Asked 32 Women What They Really Want And These Are Their Answers

    "I want us to listen to each other."

    by , , ,

    You may remember the song “Quiet” that went viral during the Women’s March in January and inspired women everywhere to come together and form #icantkeepquiet choirs.

    BuzzFeed was able to team up with the original writer and singer of the song, MILCK, to make a music video to celebrate women everywhere. Watch it here:
