John Lennon and his wife, Yoko Ono, are the authors of “Woman Is The N**ger Of The World,” a deeply feminist song if there ever was one. Just listen to these lyrics:

“We insult her everyday on TV / And wonder why she has no guts or confidence / When she’s young we kill her will to be free / While telling her not to be so smart we put her down for being so dumb.”

In an interview with the Dick Cavett show where he and Ono performed the song, Lennon explained, “I really believe women have it the worst. However badly [sic] or poor people are, it’s the woman that takes it when they get home from work.” []
