Dott have teamed up with Speedy Ortiz’s Sadie Dupuis for Like a Girl from their upcoming album “Heart Swell” out June 8th 2018 on Graveface Records.
“It has always bothered me when people say that doing something ‘like a girl’ means that they did it weakly or sub-standardly. To put this outdated notion to bed, I wrote this song to remind people that doing something ‘like a girl’ means it will be powerful and no shit will be taken” says Dott’s Anna McCarthy.
“It’s especially relevant in Ireland at the moment with the fast approaching Referendum on Reproductive Rights (voting on May 25th). Irish women and girls have spent years fighting for reproductive rights, demanding a referendum to change archaic and unsafe Irish Law. And now we are a matter of weeks away from the referendum finally happening, all because of the fierce and tireless work of the women’s groups of Ireland.
So, if you want to do something, and you think it’s worth doing at all, you’d better hope that everyone says you did it like a girl.”
