"I’m "ninety pounds of fire in a five-foot frame and you’d better move on over" because I’m tired of working for "59 cents for every man’s dollar!" Bobbie McGhee means business, literally, in this album dedicated to the working woman. Singing the songs of Si Khan, Willie Sordill, Jane Levine and others, McGhee proves that women are a force to be reckoned with and deserve their bread, roses and raises too."
"It is voices like Peggy Seeger’s on this album that helped to make significant strides in the struggle for gender equality. Seeger’s commentary is poignant and timeless as songs like "Nine-Month Blues" remain applicable in a society where a woman’s right to choose continues to instigate fiery debate."
