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

"I want us to listen to each other."

Posted on

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:
