Little Mix wrote the song in a session with Zimbabwean-American singer-songwriter Alexandra "Shun" Govere who also co-penned the girls 2016 single "Touch
." Like, the British four piece, Shun is a feminist and they explicitly mention the pro-woman movement during "Joan of Arc."Oh, you on that feminist tip
Hell yeah, I am!"
Thirlwell explained that they discussed during their writing how there's "a weird stigma attached to admitting you're a feminist." Little Mix have never understood why this is, so they decided to declare their feminism in this song.
