One of our all time favorites Etta Bond gives us hope that there are still artists with voices and messages out there. She has just released a new music video for her new self-empowering song Seen and Never Heard and we love it.

"They might judge us, rate us out of 10, objectify us....When you are able to deflect the bullshit people throw at you, when you are able to shrug at people's feeble attempts to define who you are—the strength and power absorbed from that is worth the bullet. This video was not just a chance for us to 'love ourselves the way we are' it was to test ourselves. This was not an egotistical display. It was us, coming together as one. If you can't see past a bunch of naked ladies, you're simply proving my point. And that's fine." *

We just couldn`t (and did not want to) look past these beautiful visuals and images that project an important feminist message. It`s time to finally stop objectifing and sexualizing woman and their bodies. It`s time to stop the unnecessary hate and embrace what we got - love.

"If you can truly see the beauty in others, you'll truly see the beauty in yourself. I hope to give young women a video that will encourage them, and show them how to love themselves, not wish they were somebody else. I want girls to remember and understand that they are in control of their own lives, of themselves. I want girls to know that they are worthy, not inadequate. I want girls to be seen and heard." *

We hear you.
