17: ‘Girl in a Country Song’ by Maddie & Tae

Natasha spent her youth in a country song. There wasn’t much respect in being a girl. There used to be, but now, girls weren’t good for anything other than looking good for the guys. They had to wear a bikini top and painted-on, cut-off jeans and walk around barefooted.

The guys didn’t even call the girls by their names. They simply called out ‘hey girl’, when they wanted them over to sit with them on their tailgate. The girls were really just supposed to climb up in the guys’ trucks, keep their mouths shut and ride along, whether they wanted to or not – and consider themselves lucky to get that.

Natasha and her friend weren’t going to take it anymore. They rejected any advances and announced their displeasure with the system publicly by mocking it.
