  • Annie Lennox, Aretha Franklin and The Charles Williams Gospel Choir share the vocals. The song is considered to be a modern feminist anthem.
  • Tina Turner was the first choice for the collaboration but she turned The Eurythmics down because the song was apparently too feminist in content.
  • In an interview coinciding with her 2006 ASCAP Founders Award, Annie Lennox said: "Women are the most extraordinary force in the world. There is such a strong need for feminism, particularly in developing countries where women are still relegated to third class citizen status - where they don't have choices about their fertility, education and life choices. I'm very grateful for the things that feminism has offered me. I can vote in a democratic system. Women and men are trying to progress together, but women very often carry the brunt of the burden in life. Actually, I do like to take the opportunity to speak up for women's rights."
  • This was featured in the 1996 film The First Wives Club and in the 2003 movie Legally Blonde 2. (thanks, Edward Pearce - Ashford, Kent, England, for all above)
