You don’t own me

You Don’t Own Me” is a pop song written by Philadelphia songwriters John Madara and David White and recorded by Lesley Gore in 1963, when she was only 17 years old.

The song’s lyrics became an inspiration for younger women and are sometimes cited as a factor in the second wave feminist movement. Gore said, “My take on the song was: I’m 17, what a wonderful thing, to stand up on a stage and shake your finger at people and sing you don’t own me.

Above you have the version included in Suicide Squad to introduce the character of Harley Quinn in jail; it’s a cover by Australian singer Grace, with that stinking rap by G-Eazy that defiles the song. Below you have the original song by Lesley Gore, with the lyrics in English and the translation into Castilian (most recommended).
