What A Bxxxxxd The World Is: The Feminist Politics of Yoko Ono’s Personal Song
When I began listening to Yoko Ono’s music and learned that it wasn’t at all what I’d been led to believe, one of the first songs I was strongly drawn to was a track from the second side of her landmark 1973 double album Approximately Infinite Universe, titled What A Bxxxxxd The World Is. Her later 1973 album Feeling The Space would contain so many songs explicitly dealing with the lives and rights of women — from Woman Power to Men, Men, Men, from Angry Young Woman to Yellow Girl, from She Hits Back to Woman of Salem — that it is regularly referred to as a feminist concept album. http://thecurvature.com/2011/07/06/what-a-bastard-the-world-is-the-feminist-politics-of-yoko-onos-personal-song/
