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..

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.

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

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..


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.

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!
