Lyrics

This song is for all women in struggle

Forced to make their troubled ways alone

In the courts, in the homes, and in the factories

Our heroines unnamed and unknown

Chorus:

They knew they'd never change the world without fighting

Even though they had a lot to lose

If you can stand the pain, it's worth deciding

To defend a woman's right to choose

Oh my sisters, dear sisters, be strong.

2. Before we had a movement to call our own,

There were women fighting one by one

And even now, when the going gets tough

There are times there seems to be no one

But we can never change the world without fighting

Even though we've got a lot to lose

If you can stand the pain, it's worth deciding

To defend a woman's right to choose

Oh my sisters, dear sisters, be strong

3. Whatever rights we cherish now,

There are mothers, and their mothers to thank

For the sake of ourselves and our daughters to come

It is time for us to join in the ranks

For we can never change the world without fighting

Even though we've got a lot to lose

If you can stand the pain, it's worth deciding

To defend a woman's right to choose

Oh my sisters, dear sisters, Come along!
