March On’s Statement on the Passing of Global Feminist Icon Helen Reddy

“March On mourns the loss of global feminist icon Helen Reddy, a lifelong activist and the powerful voice behind the 1972 feminist anthem ‘I Am Woman.’

“She wrote the song and performed it for decades, and every word remains relevant today. Her voice both inside and outside the studio was powerful and will be heard by future generations. Helen’s anthem changed lives because it helped women find their own voices, and it will forever remain a seismic piece of work in the history of feminism. We are immensely grateful for her trailblazing life and will continue to carry her torch into the future.”
