The sentiment might be subtle or overt, but either way the listener or reader makes meaning in connection to her or his own experience. Consider how lyrics can celebrate, challenge, and/or promote social change themes related to women, family, and community.   In this week’s Discussion, you choose a song with lyrics that represent social change as it relates to women’s family and community experience. This week, however, differs from previous weeks in that you analyze lyrics posted by a colleague and he or she, in turn, analyzes the lyrics you post.   To prepare for this Discussion:   Consider how music has influenced and/or been influenced by social change. Search your personal music library, the Internet, or another resource for a song (including this week’s Optional Resources) that meets the following criteria: The song was written by a woman. The song reflects a social change theme that directly or indirectly relates to women’s family and community experience. The song includes two literary techniques listed in the “Glossary of Terms and Techniques for Literature and Creative Writing” document. The song may be from any time period or country, but lyrics have an English translation available. Summarize and paraphrase the song using proper APA citation rules. Consider how the song offers a social change perspective related to women’s family and community experience. Identify lyrics within the song that reflect the family and community themes conveyed in this week’s required resources by Ensler, Hamlet, Porter, or Brady. With these thoughts in mind: Post by Day 2 an active link to the lyrics of the song you selected. Include the song title and name of the songwriter with your posting. Use proper APA citation rules.
